Manpower Development in Highway Safety: Needs, Issues and Alternatives for Action.
Bishop (R. W.) and Associates, Tallahassee, FL.
This project was conducted to: (1) identify and clarify the primary needs and issues related to highway safety manpower education and training, (2) evaluate the potential sources of assistance for resolving the needs and issues, and (3) evolve strategies for bringing about a significant improvement in the quality and quantity of highway safety manpower. Relevant literature was examined for ideas related to project objectives, and data were gathered through personal interviews with appropriate representatives of various organizations concerned with manpower development in highway safety. A major source of data came from planning, conducting, and follow-up activities related to a manpower development symposium, and texts of the major speeches from the symposium are included in this report. Project findings are reported concerning: (1) the organizational structure of highway safety management, (2) current status of manpower development, (3) the private sector and (4) education and training. The report concludes that before any major improvement occurs, closer coordination and cooperation is needed within and among the levels of government, and between governmental and non-governmental groups.(SB)
