Road safety practitioners need more practical help and support in evaluating their road safety education, training and publicity (ETP) interventions, according to a survey of users of the E-valu-it toolkit.
Developed by RoSPA and the DfT, the E-valu-it website was launched in December 2010 to help road safety practitioners evaluate their ETP activities.
An on-line survey was emailed to registered users of E-valu-it with the results displayed in a short report. Almost half of respondents said they found the desired information ‘most of the time’; two-thirds said they had created one or more projects within the toolkit, and had read their ‘E-valu-it’ recommendations; and 80% said they found the recommendations ‘somewhat/quite’ helpful.
To help practitioners use the website, and for general evaluation queries, an on-line discussion forum is freely available on LinkedIn. The group is called: Roadsafetyevaluation.com.
