Road traffic injuries claim 1.35 million lives each year with a disproportionate impact on health and development. They are the ninth leading cause of death across all age groups globally and the leading cause among young people aged between 15 and 29 years, costing governments approximately 3% of GDP and 5% in low- and middle-income countries.
This certified training course is designed to provide a methodical overview of climate change mitigation strategies and emergency response management. Participants will be guided through various processes aimed at conducting thorough risk preparedness assessments and the associated remedial measures. Throughout the course, the issue of successful engagement with impacted residents will be addressed.
This seminar is designed to meet the educational needs of government officials in charge of surface transportation procurements and contracts.
Preventive risk assessment measures, such as a road safety audit or inspections, carried out on new and existing roads offer a well-charted and cost-effective pathway to reducing road traffic injury risk, because design standards alone cannot guarantee road safety in all conditions.
Tolling related technologies have made tremendous progress over the past decade, and today developing and implementing a nationwide solution presents fewer technological risks than was the case 10-15 years ago. Nevertheless, Capital & Operational Expenditures remain a significant hurdle for many road agencies. It is therefore essential for decision-makers to carefully consider the system they want to have in place prior to large-scale investment.
The Safe Roads by Design™: Making Roads Safe for all Users certified training program is one of the most comprehensive road safety training programs in the world. Experts in the field will present best practices and state of the art technologies in Roadside Safety, Work Zone Safety, Vulnerable User Safety, Traffic Management and Road Safety Audits over a five-day period.
