The fourth annual MAST Conference once again attracted a wide range of road safety professionals from across the country to look at new trends in road casualty analysis.
The 2014 MAST Conference was held on 11 March at Dunchurch Park Hotel in Rugby. The conference focuses on MAST Online, a web based road safety data analysis tool created by Road Safety Analysis, which provides stakeholders with national crash data for user-customised in-depth analysis, and also offers unique insights into people involved in crashes with the help of Mosaic Public Sector.
The day started with a keynote presentation by Dr Simon Christmas in which he looked critically at the way in which segmentation can be used to help deliver value for money.
A central plank of the 2014 conference was the introduction of a host of new features in MAST Online, including Contributory Factor (CF) analysis in MAST Professional.
Delegates heard that the introduction of CF data gives users the power to look in far greater detail at the underlying causes of collisions, assessing the impact of issues such as excessive speed, road condition and impairment by alcohol.
Road Safety Analysis also used the conference to unveil the new Highway Authority Network Classification System which enables users to compare performance between authorities on the basis of the similarity of their road networks.
The day finished with a first look at some of the new dashboard features that the MAST team is working on which are designed to facilitate powerful comparative analysis, delivered in an easy-to-use clickable interface.
