ROAD SAFETY AUDIT TRAINING PROGRAMME

OBJECTIVE  Expose respective professionals to technical and scientific approaches to address traffic safety issues.  Provide hands-on experience in the audit of existing roads.  Create safer road design and traffic facilities  Detailing the combination of human and environmental factors that can be used in engineering and traffic management actions towards eliminating contributory factors in road crashes. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), more than one million people die each year on roads worldwide and between 20 and 50 million sustain non-fatal injuries. This Global Status Report on Road Safety is a broad assessment of the road safety situation in 178 countries, using data drawn from a standardised survey. There are several factors responsible for road crashes, namely humans, vehicles, roads and the overall environment. However, most crashes are deemed to be due to human error. The scenario in Malaysia is no less dampening with daily deaths from road crashes hitting double digits and the number of those injured in triple digits. Over the years, REAM has been organising a series of short courses on Road Safety Audit. The focus of this programme is to identify any potentially unsafe features or operational arrangements that may adversely affect the safety of road users. This includes the formal examination of planning, design and construction of road projects and examination of existing roads. A pass certificate will be issued to each participant who attends all five (5) modules of this programme and passes the test. The certificate shall be submitted by the participants to fulfill one of the requirements for recognition as an Accredited Road Safety Auditor by major road authorities in the country.
