West of Scotland training initiative

Steve Proctor and Pete Smith spent most of this week in Milngavie in the lee of the Campsie Hills training 20 road safety staff from the west of Scotland Road Safety Group.

The three day Introduction to Road Safety Audit course was commissioned on behalf of ten different local roads authorities from the Strathclyde and Ayrshire region. The delegates were all experienced road safety, traffic and road design staff, but with very little previous experience in undertaking audits.

The course included a Stage 3 site visit to an innovative section of commuter cycle route into Glasgow, and six design stage audits, in which delegates were encouraged to write their safety issues up in the HD 19/15 “problem and recommendation” format.

Our photos show Pete Smith (below) explaining details of collision investigation in the classroom, and delegates inspecting the cycle route during the stage 3 workshop.
