A one-day course aimed at those who undertake Road Safety Audits and encounter difficult or innovative schemes that may be new or have unusual features that they have not experienced before.
The course looks at how the auditor can review such schemes in a pragmatic manner, how to deal with the new design log issues, and potential conflicts that may arise through the RSA process. After attending, delegates should be able to undertake Road Safety Audits more objectively and confidently.
This course is suitable for experienced professionals who are expected to carry out audits, those who commission audits, at designers whose work is audited, and at those who manage the RSA process.
The course should give delegates confidence to undertake road safety audits on new or innovative schemes and use their experience to give advice on safety issues related to several highway features. The course provides hands-on experience of carrying out road safety audits on a number of different scheme types and encourages delegates to share their experiences of road safety and highway design.
The course will give delegates an introduction into how to assess new features and evaluate the risks associated with them. It will also explore how the design log in GG 119 can be used to resolve different views and discuss common problems that may affect highway safety. It will also inform and encourage colleagues to support casualty reduction activities in their day to day roles.
Delegates completing this course will receive a CPD certificate of attendance, recognised by both the IHE and CIHT.
