TMS has just completed a project for the Public Works Department (PWD) of the Republic of Cyprus, in response to the training requirements of the European Directive on Road Infrastructure Safety Management. Ten engineers from Cyprus attended a five day course put together by TMS in compliance with the PWD's own RSA syllabus. The course covered collision causation and investigation, road safety audit, and the safety implications of design at preliminary design, detailed design, and construction stages. A series of lectures, classroom workshops and site visits were carried out. At the end of the course the learners took a test to comply with the Directive requirement for an "initial training leading to the award of a certificate of competence". The photo shows learners out on site during the Stage 3 site visit. Steve Proctor, TMS Director who undertook the training on behalf of the PWD said: "these guys worked really hard to cover a lot of ground in just 5 days. They showed massive commitment, and considerable ability and understanding of safety issues. I think that they will make a big contribution to collision prevention once they start auditing schemes here."
TMS has also carried out Cert Comp training in compliance with the Directive in Malta and Ireland, and currently offers a UK Cert Comp in conjunction with its 2 day Keeping up to date with Safety Audit course.
