TMS attended the Road Safety Audit Forum in Doha on Tuesday 20th January 2015. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the process and procedures of carrying out road safety audits in Qatar, where items such as the Safe System approach and the use of Risk Ratings were debated. Workshops were also undertaken to establish whether consistent approaches were adopted by auditors, ensuring compliance with the draft Qatar Road Safety Audit Guidelines and Procedures.
Harminder Aulak, Technical Director of Engineering Services at TMS said:
“After many years of auditing major schemes in Qatar, it was good to meet and network with other audit teams in Doha at the Forum. It allowed good practice ideas to be exchanged and get a clearer understanding of the buoyant road infrastructure programme in the country, which is undergoing rapid development.”
