Standard Motorcycle Child Safety Helmet Initiative (MCHI) Program

The main aim of this intervention study is to test the hypothesis if helmet initiative program will significantly increase helmet usage in primary school students. The secondary aim of this intervention is to evaluate the behavioral change in standard child safety helmet usage among the parent/adult riders. The study was conducted in 23 primary school in Selangor from 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2018 in three different phases.


In Malaysia, the road traffic plans estimated that the number of death on road traffics might increase almost 23% from 2014-2020 (Royal Police of Malaysia, 2017). The main road crash involved the motorcyclist and the main cause of death was due to the severe head injuries. Previous study in Malaysia had reported only 20% of proper helmet usage among the adult riders (Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research, 2015). This highlights the need to transfer the knowledge to the parent/adult riders on the importance, proper usage and availability of the standard child safety helmet and hence increase the prevalence of standard helmet usage for the pillion riders especially for the children.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The development of systems to prevent accidents, injuries, and other adverse occurrences in an institutional setting. The concept includes prevention or reduction of adverse events or incidents involving employees, patients, or facilities. Examples include plans to reduce injuries from falls or plans for fire safety to promote a safe institutional environment.

Repeated physical injuries inflicted on the child by the parent, parents, or surrogate parent; often triggered by the child's minor and normal irritating behavior.

Recurrent seizures causally related to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Seizure onset may be immediate but is typically delayed for several days after the injury and may not occur for up to two years. The majority of seizures have a focal onset that correlates clinically with the site of brain injury. Cerebral cortex injuries caused by a penetrating foreign object (CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, PENETRATING) are more likely than closed head injuries (HEAD INJURIES, CLOSED) to be associated with epilepsy. Concussive convulsions are nonepileptic phenomena that occur immediately after head injury and are characterized by tonic and clonic movements. (From Rev Neurol 1998 Feb;26(150):256-261; Sports Med 1998 Feb;25(2):131-6)

Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
