Work Zone Safety Course in Doha certifies a new group of engineers

A new group of 25 engineers got certified at the end of the course on work zone safety which was co-organised by IRF and Qatar transportation and Traffic Safety Centre (QTTSC) last week in Doha and animated by Miguel Angel Serrano Santos. This is the first of a series of courses on road safety. The next one is scheduled for 19-21 November 2019 and will focus on Road Safety Management.

Attendees learned how to design a safe work zone and newest technologies for work zone safety. The use of positive protection from crash worthy barriers, truck mounted attenuators, dynamic, variable message signs, average speed camera enforcement and flagger training were among the topics discussed. Another important part of the Work Zones is the use of vertical signs and road markings, which was covered in depth during the course.

The next Course part of this series will be on “Road Safety Management” and will be hosted on 19-21 November in Doha, Qatar.  This three-day training course has been designed for professionals who wish to dig into:

  • the three distinctive elements of the safety management system (institutional management, the interventions and the results) and the linkages in between them.
  • ISO39001 standard on Road Traffic Safety Management
  • Impact of RTSM on Business & Operational Performance
