Delivering "Vision Zero" in Road Tunnels
 

Tunnel safety has received significant attention in recent years as a result of major accidents that have led to fatalities, casualties and considerable economic damage. Due to the enclosed nature of a tunnel, the occurrence of a relatively minor incident has the potential to develop into a catastrophe as well as cause significant damage to tunnel infrastructure. In this practical workshop best-practices and the effect of existing tunnel safety measures on the safety level and management of a tunnel are discussed.

Post-crash investigations determine how and why these failures occur and give additional answers to determine what can be done to prevent similar incidents. Road safety professionals need to know the basics of crash investigation in order to introduce measures to prevent similar crashes in the future. Understanding the crash phases and causes provides skills for the practitioners to improve safety in their community.

Pavement Management
September 14 - 30, 2020 | Online Training
16  Professional Development Hours

Pavement Management systems have been designed to provide information on the functional and structural condition of roads so that road owners can offer a smooth and safe ride to road users at the lowest possible cost. They also provide reliable information to decision makers about the condition of the road network for maintenance and rehabilitation planning and funding.
 
The goal of the on-line training workshop will be to help those working with Pavement Management Systems better understand the damage mechanisms that affect the lifetime of paved and gravel road networks and how they can be monitored with different technologies. Theoretical and practical examples will be given on how organizations adopt more economical proactive maintenance policies.

Upon completion of the training program, the IRF will administer an on-line knowledge test. Participants with a score of 80% of the exam will be awarded with a certificate verifying their successful completion of the course.
