The CB-SAFE project promotes the development of border safety and security by increasing security awareness at border crossing points for passengers, and by improving the performance of rescue professionals by developing training and cooperation.
The activities of this Work Package 1 are focused on enhancing the skills, safety knowledge and safety attitudes of passengers crossing the Finnish-Russian border. This will prevent individual incidents and accidents, as well as create continuous development process in cross-border safety culture.
Producing practical solutions
The goal of this Work Package 1 is to produce concrete instructional safety material such as leaflets, as well as digital safety information that can be distributed to cross-border passengers.
To do this, research is been made e.g. by:
- studying law framework, risk analysis, statistics and existing cross-border safety information
- conducting questionnaires for passengers
- interviewing Finnish rescue departments and other key cooperative partners
- testing the research results in places crowded with passengers, and
- assessing the results based on feedback from end users
