TMS has successfully delivered its first new Road Safety Audit CPD course in the UK since the launch, on March 30th this year, of the updated national Standard for Road Safety Audit HD 19/15.
This new two day course – “Keeping Up to Date with Safety Audit” – is aimed at qualified auditors with at least two years of experience in undertaking safety audits. The course examines the new UK HD 19/15, and then introduces delegates to the DfT’s Standard GD 04/12, making them aware of the risk assessment process and levels of tolerability of safety risk for road users, a requirement of HD 19/15.
It also looks at a number of new research publications, considers the highway design implications of an ageing road user population, and investigates a series of fatal cycle collisions together with innovative solutions to cycle design issues. In addition delegates undertake a number of safety audit workshops, including an All Lanes Running scheme, and a Stage 4 on site.
Course Tutor Paul Martin said “ It’s great to have the opportunity to share my experiences gained in assisting with the re-write of HD 19/15, and having carried out GD 04/12 work for the Highways Agency . We will be running this popular course again soon in Coventry and then in London, so anyone wanting to maintain their CPD in line with the requirements of UK Institutions will be welcome on this course”.
