"Falls are not an ordinary risk of life."

It is always a cause-effect relationship.

Our ObSRGS / SRGS Observatory is formed by national and international collaborators, of a multidisciplinary nature, directed with the aim of working in the study, analysis, research, training and information of each of the parameters or agents involved in falls. by slippage, slippage or slip in spaces for public use.

An international space open to the scientific opinions of experts from around the world.

Reports, analysis and opinions of interest in our ObSRGS / Observatory of the SRGS

From the community of collaborators, the Observatory of the SRGS will make available to the users reports and analyzes of interest on the most current topics related to accessibility and prevention of falls in pedestrian traffic. All our collaborators have opened our Observatory of the SRGS to publish their opinion articles from different areas signed by themselves.
