Saving lives by eliminating high risk roads


Speaker: Dr Suzy Charman, Executive Director of the Road Safety Foundation

The International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) is a registered charity dedicated to saving lives by eliminating high risk roads throughout the world. Like many life-saving charities working in the public health arena, we use a robust, evidence-based approach to prevent unnecessary deaths and suffering.

iRAP works in partnership with governments, road authorities, mobility clubs, development banks, NGOs and research organisations to:

  • Inspect high-risk roads and develop Star Ratings, Risk Maps and Safer Roads Investment Plans
  • Provide training, technology and support that will build and sustain national, regional and local capability
  • Track road safety performance so that funding agencies can assess the benefits of their investments.

This MasterClass will give an overview of the iRAP approach that offers road safety practitioners a proactive methodology for identifying and treating risk.  Suzy will introduce the iRAP analysis tools ViDA in the masterclass and will provide a preview of plans for a new route review tool that will make road safety impact assessment extremely accessible and easy to perform.
