Injuries In Kentucky • Injuries kill more Kentuckians every year between the ages of 1 and 44 than heart disease, cancer, stroke and HIV combined. • From 2000 to 2005, Kentucky had the 6th highest rate of unintentional injury deaths in the United States, with the leading causes being motor vehicle crashes, poisoning (including drug overdoses) and falls.

  6. Culture of Safety What is this thing called culture? Culture is a combination of : • Attitudes,  • Behaviors,  • Beliefs,  • Values,  • Ways of doing things, and • Other shared characteristics of a particular group of people. Culture Can: • Socialize newcomers. • Define influence. • Determine values. When these criteria are consistently and effectively aimed at accident reduction, a positive culture of safety is created

Concept for Kentucky • Establish a statewide network of designated Safe Communities • Link communities that are serious about and dedicated to safety and injury prevention. • Provide leadership and act as a mentor to communities interested in SCA designation • Maximize our collective impact on reducing the burden of injuries and violence on our state. • KIPRC serves as an affiliate Safe Communities Support Center and will partner with KSPAN members on community level implementations of evidence based interventions.
