Online Technical Workshop on “Role of Road Safety Audits in Improving Traffic Safety”
November 8, 2020 – November 10, 2020 CET
The newly adopted UN Resolution on “Improving Global Road Safety” encourages Member States to make efforts to ensure the safety and protection of all road users through safer road infrastructure by taking into account the needs of motorized and non-motorized transport, and other vulnerable road users, especially on the highest-risk roads with high rates of crashes, through a combination of proper planning and safety assessment, including design, building and maintenance of roads.
1.35 million people die on roads every year. Road Traffic Injuries are 8th leading cause of death. The new resolution declares a new Decade of Action (2021-2030) with the objective to reach a 50% reduction of deaths and injuries by 2030.
Road Safety Audits (RSAs) are one of the main risk assessment tools that can be applied at successive stages of road planning, design, and operations. This online technical workshop aims at building the understanding of the importance and benefits of RSAs. Furthermore, it provides basic information on the scope and procedure of RSAs as well as the role and skills of the RSA team.
This workshop is organised as a series of three webinars taking place always at the same time but spread over three consecutive days. Check the agenda for all the details. Once registered, the link that you will receive will allow you to connect to the three webinars.
Places are limited! A certificate of attendance will be delivered only to those who have registered and have fully attended all the three webinars scheduled on 8, 9, 10 November.
