Positive feedback for pedestrian seminar
Delegates who attended the Pedestrian Safety Seminar on 8 May, jointly organised by TRL and Road Safety GB, have provided very positive feedback about the event.
Held during the Second UN Global Road Safety Week (6–12 May), the fully-subscribed seminar was a training opportunity for road safety practitioners and raised awareness of the dangers faced by pedestrians.
86% of those who completed the post-event questionnaire rated the overall seminar as good or very good; 79% said it would be helpful or very helpful in their day-to-day activities; and 92% rated the presentations as good or very good.
Darren Divall, head of the Road Safety GB Academy and chair of the seminar, said: “The feedback from delegates highlights that this was a well received event.
“More importantly, practitioners went away with a wealth of practical knowledge and advice that they can implement to enhance existing programmes or to develop new schemes. These enhancements will no doubt have a positive effect on pedestrian road safety in the UK.”
The not-for-profit event also generated a surplus of £2,260 which will be donated to the Global Road Safety Fund.
TRL and Road Safety GB are keen to run more courses and seminars in the future and delegates indicated a number of topics they would like covered.
