STAR Competence: 7.6 Road Safety

Objectives:

In 2016 1,792 people died in traffic accidents in Great Britain, a 4% increase from 2015. Although Great Britain is one of the best performing countries in the world when it comes to road safety, there are still improvements that can be made to reduce the number of deaths and injuries occurring on our roads. 

This course will introduce delegates to the causes of accidents and how they can be addressed by engineering, education and enforcement. It will particularly focus on the use of road safety audits as one way of ensuring that safety is given sufficient consideration in the design process. The course will be useful to both those new to the safety audit process and those looking for updates on the latest development in this field.

• Causes of Accidents and Analysis of Accident Data

• Remedial and Preventative Action - Education, Enforcement & Engineering

• Road Safety Audit - Introduction and Guidance

• Workshop - Stage 1/2 Road Safety Audits

• TfL and DMRB approaches to Auditing

• Workshop - Stage 3 Road Safety Audits

Target Audience:

The course is designed for road safety auditors who wish to refresh and update their knowledge, those looking to meet CPD requirements, and for people with limited or no experience of road safety auditing activities who wish to learn more about this area of work. People working in the fields of transport planning, development management, regeneration and urban design will find this one day course and indispensable introduction to road safety engineering techniques and audit methods.

It is also suitable for those with managerial responsibility for engineering design, road safety audit and project development teams, who are looking for a broad overview of techniques and issues.
