Abstract

In Hong Kong, a study of the trends and characteristics of accidents involving older persons was undertaken in a railway system. As part of a wider objective of engaging staff and students to help older persons to achieve safe and healthy journeys, a team of gerontologist and psychologists and their students was engaged to review accidents and incidents involving older persons and undertake research into possible underlying causes and mitigation measures. The aim of the study was to conduct a community project with older railway passengers to identify key factors related to accidents including physical environmental conditions.
