MAST Online, developed and managed by Road Safety Analysis (RSA), won the Road Safety Award at the 2011 Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation Awards (CIHT) Awards on 15 June.
MAST is an online analysis tool which provides easy access to road casualty data and integrated socio-demographic profiling of casualties and drivers.
The CIHT Road Safety Award aims to identify and celebrate good road safety practice and the judging panel recognised MAST’s contribution to the road safety community nationally.
The judges concluded: “MAST creates the circumstances for all education and publicity campaigns to be properly targeted and efficient initiatives, which is particularly important with constrained budgets and fewer easy sites left to treat with conventional engineering measures.”
Dan Campsall, RSA marketing director, said: “This is the culmination of more than five years’ work laying the foundations for and developing the MAST project. We are hugely grateful for the support of many professionals nationwide who have helped to shape MAST and make it the vital tool it has become.”
Bruce Walton, RSA technical director and MAST project manager, added: “Feedback from users shows just how widely MAST is now being used to develop innovative schemes on a solid evidential basis.
“We are really pleased that this award recognises their good work and underlines the important role that MAST can play in taking road safety forward during tough economic times. With further developments soon to be unveiled, the already unrivalled insight that MAST can offer professionals is only set to improve.”
RSA will be presenting a summary of the work already undertaken at the CIHT Showcase Seminar on 21 June.
