Collision analysts’ report published
The report gives the findings of a survey developed by Road Safety GB in partnership with Road Safety Analysis (RSA), with grant funding provided by the DfT, as a scoping exercise to establish the needs of analysts.
The survey shows that road collision analysts would welcome more support and recognition of the specialist work they undertake, and for it to be easier for them to interact with their peers and share best practice.
The survey, undertaken during May and June 2015, attracted 114 responses from local authority employees and a small number (circa 10% of total) working for national organisations including the RAC Foundation, Highways England and the Transport Research Laboratory.
The results show that while many respondents are confident in their analytical skills, there is a desire for further training and for sharing best practice.
The report details a series of immediate actions, interim measures and longer-term plans to address the survey findings and requirements outlined by analysts.
Honor Byford, chair of Road Safety GB, said: “The management team at Road Safety GB, along with colleagues at the DfT, RSA and those who contributed the survey, are considering the next steps, and we will publish regular progress updates via this newsfeed.”
