Press release from the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS)
In comparison to accessible, well-populated and milder areas, there has been less attention to safety in cold and remote areas and their special characteristics. However, as human activities in the Arctic and the Antarctic increase, the need for research on different aspects of safety in this context grows.
The aim of the special issue in Safety Science, written by Eirik Albrechtsen and Martin Indreiten at the Arctic Safety Centre, is to contribute to the current body of knowledge on Arctic Safety as well as to bring more attention to both safety research as well as safety practice in the Arctic.
The special issue on Arctic safety consists of seven selected papers from the first Arctic Safety Conference arranged in Longyearbyen, Norway 13–15 May 2019.
