About the Course

This course is designed for Executives, Engineers and Researchers of Transportation Engineering to identify and study the factors contributing to road crashes, its data collection, analysis using geospatial and statistical methods, prioritization, management and derivation of preventive countermeasures (3Es), and, before-after evaluations. The before-after evaluations include behavioral studies (conflicts) at
treatment sites or using historical crash data (say, three years before and three years after).

Overall, the evaluation of planned/existing roadway facilities will be presented from a safety point of view while emphasising the need for consistent data collection standards (crash data, geometric features, traffic characteristics, environmental conditions and surrogate data).

Objectives

• Highlighting the need for road safety and identification of various factors contributing to road crashes.
• Exposing participants about road crash data collection procedure, its analysis, prioritization, management and derivation of preventive countermeasures, and, before-after evaluations.
• Explaining the procedure for evaluation of planned/existing roadway facilities from a safety point of view as well as emphasis on the need for consistent data collection standards (crash data, geometric features, traffic characteristics, environmental conditions and surrogate data).
• Training the participants related theoretical and practical concepts.

Registration Fees
