RSGB webinar to deliver a beginner’s guide to using iRAP

09.09 | 21 February 2024 | |

The next webinar for Road Safety GB members will explain how iRAP can help road authorities in their implementation of a safe system.

The webinar, which takes place at 10am on Tuesday 12 March, is being facilitated by Dr Suzy Charman, executive director of the Road Safety Foundation.

Registration is now open for the webinar, which takes place on Zoom and will last for approximately 45 minutes.

The International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) assesses the safety standards of roads.

iRAP’s Star Rating Methodology provides a simple and objective measure of the level of safety which is ‘built-in’ to the road for vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. A one-star road is the least safe and a five-star road is the safest.

The webinar will also provide an introduction to the iRAP tool suite, including a specialist resource to help understand the risks to, and improve the safety of, vulnerable road users in towns and cities.

The free-to-access ViDA tool hosts data gathered through iRAP. In July 2023, the tool was enhanced with an extra set of countermeasures – thanks to a project funded by The Road Safety Trust.

Registration is now open – and is free for employees of Road Safety GB member organisations and RSGB Academy members only.
