Event Information
For too long the areas of Road Safety Engineering and Road Safety Behaviour have worked in isolation. The traditional three “Es” Education Enforcement and Engineering – frequently augmented by Encouragement and Evaluation are still very relevant but so much more can be gained by establishing and integrating closer links between each of these areas. Improving road junctions will only be of maximum benefit if it is matched by an educational programme to inform road users how it should be used. In most cases we don’t do that and rely on drivers, pedestrians and those who ride on two wheels to work it out for themselves. The safe systems approach is a real step in the right direction and seeks to link or three “Es” in a more tangible way delivering what we hope will be safer roads and safer road users linked with the tremendous advancements we are already making with safer vehicle design.

This conference/training event is important therefore for highway engineers and road safety practitioners as well as the enforcement and rescue services all of whom have a vital role in designing, improving and understanding the network so that it provides safety and security for all road users.

Above all else we need to explore ways in which we can within our individual professional skills work together to identify best practise, become more innovative and maximise limited resources.

Not only do we need to strengthen the links between roads and people we also need to understand, develop and coordinate the working practices of all those practitioners who are involved.

  • Road Safety Engineers
  • Road Safety Auditors
  • Road Safety Officers
  • Officers engaged in sustainable transport initiatives
  • Those engaged in managing road building schemes
