Success for the first TMS/Passive Safety UK seminar held in Durham

TMS and Passive Safety UK have just completed the first of a series of Passive Safety seminars in Durham.

The event, which took place on 27th April 2010 at Durham County Hall was a huge success with over 70 delegates attending and 14 exhibitors demonstrating a range of passively safe products.

The morning seminar launched the new Passive Safety Guidelines with a talk by author David Milne, together with contributions from other speakers including TMS Director Steve Proctor who spoke on the design and safety audit aspects of Passive Safety.

In the afternoon delegates undertook two workshops in which delegates, together with exhibitors, worked together to design passive safety solutions on real road schemes. This innovative concept of putting designers and distributors together in groups worked well, with the exhibitors able to offer advice on the type of products available for specific situations.

The success of the event was in no small part due to the active co-operation of Don Waller and his team at Durham County Council.
