The IRF today introduced a unique Global Credential Program for Road Safety Audit Team Leaders, recognizing the essential role of Road Safety Audits to drive change in safe road design practices.

In a policy statement released today, the International Road Federation affirmed the essential role of road safety audits and inspections, and called on multilateral institutions to introduce qualitative benchmarks and capacity strengthening programs to ensure countries progress towards a safe and forgiving road system.

The Safer Roads By Design™: Across Six Continents Seminar is one of the most comprehensive road safety training programs in the world. Experts from a variety of countries 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 5-day period. The purpose of this training program is to help road authorities understand what can be done to help them meet their Decade of Action commitment to reduce fatalities 50 percent by 2020. The training program will focus on: Roadside Safety, Work Zone Safety, Vulnerable User Safety, and Road Safety Audits.

The IRF associates itself to the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year – to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected.

As a global leader in road safety, the IRF is well positioned to present state of the art methodologies and cutting edge technologies that have been field tested to forecast crashes and reduce traffic injury risk. Seminar attendees will receive the necessary theoretical background and applied practices on traffic injury risk identification and reduction to ensure their programs are the most effective globally.

New unsafe roads are being designed and built because national standards are out of date and or road authorities and design engineering cons lasting firms are unaware of today’s safety best practices and new state of the art technologies. In response, the IRF has created a complete and comprehensive world class safety training program — Safer Roads by Design™ — built to leave a lasting impression on attendees. Its intent is to introduce concepts that can be used to prevent accidents, as well as concepts that will help reduce the severity of accidents.

This 5th IRF Caribbean Regional Congress will address the specific needs of the region by bringing together industry leaders, experts and decision-makers. The region has a rapidly expanding road infrastructure and the resources to invest in the new and improved technology.

By a bitter twist of fate, the United Nation's new resolution “improving global road safety” has come to pass as many countries around the world are reporting a notable increase in injuries and deaths on their roads.

Four workshops during Intertraffic Amsterdam 2016 covered topics ranging from speed enforcement to electronic tolling. Proceedings now available to participants.
