Saving lives on roads around the world: The Exit Project’s Dr Tim Nutbeam joins the Rooftop podcast

The Rooftop has this week published a new episode of The Rooftop News Podcast, featuring an interview with Dr Tim Nutbeam, co-founder of The Exit Project, which researches new and safer ways of vehicle extrication (how emergency services get people out of cars if they are trapped following a road collision).

Tim speaks to Delia and Ian about some of the reasons why he started the Exit Project project, namely because of the mismatch he observed between the common injuries of vehicle collisions versus the techniques that extrication teams were using.

Tim discusses the problems with the previously established extrication processes, and ways that it can be improved in order to save lives on roads around the world.
