Overview

Millions of road crashes occur throughout the world every year. A car crash may have ten or more events that could be the cause. The goal of collision analysis is to identify these causes in order to understand their complexity and to realize that most car crashes are preventable by eliminating one or more of these causes.

Safety performance determines how and why these failures occur on a road network, even in the absence of robust crash data, and gives additional answers to determine what can be done to prevent similar incidents in the future and build more robust economic cases supporting road safety investments.

IRF Global is now recognized as an approved training provider by the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), a respected professional body that provides transportation professionals with recognition, support and business insights to accelerate their careers and influence the future of the sector.

Lead Instructor
Dr. Rob Thomson, Professor of Vehicle Safety, Chalmers University

Dr. Thomson’s research in road safety began in 1988 when he began post graduate studies with the UBC Accident Research Team in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Since then he has worked in almost all areas of road and traffic safety. Crash testing, accident analysis, numerical modeling, and analyzing vehicle test data have been his methods to understand why and how we are injured in a crash.

Lead Instructor
Dr. Omer Qureshi, Automotive Design and Crashworthiness Researchy

Dr. Qureshi is a scientist who specializes in the field of crash investigations. Over the years of research and practice, he has developed state of the art methodologies of investigations, reporting and wreckage forensics that can compete with the best in the world. Currently, his research center, ADCR serves as investigators for all high-profile cases in Pakistan. He also teaches this subject to the trainers of National Highway and Motorway Police in Pakistan and other organizations.
