EXTENDED ABSTRACT: The Safe System Approach states that no pedestrian should be killed or injured using the transport system. While the key underlying principles of the Safe System Approach are generally wellunderstood, the translation of its premises into practice is not yet fully realized. Using the Kinetic Energy Management Model, we developed a framework to study pedestrian crash and injury risks. We developed a practical guide, consisting of pedestrian safety infrastructural measures, to address pedestrian crash and injury risk. We believe the guide will provide the necessary tool to address pedestrian safety issues, in an effective and Safe System compliant manner.
