Road Safety

 

ILTP Consulting carry out every type of Road Safety Audit from Feasibility Stage 1 to Stage 3 and post implementation Road Safety Audits for jobs of varying scale. ILTP have conducted over 200 Road Safety Audits since 2007. ILTP can also carry out Accident Investigation and Prevention studies for local authorities or private clients.

 

The aim of Road Safety Audits is to:

  • To ensure the schemes operate as safely as possible

  • To minimise accident numbers and severity

  • To improve awareness of safe design practices by design, construction and maintenance staff

  • To consider the safety of all road users – especially Vulnerable Road Users

 

The ILTP Road Safety Audit team is headed by National Roads Authority accredited Team Leaders, who rigorously adhere to the statutory guidelines that govern the Road Safety Audit procedure, as well as ensuring that the remainder of the Road Safety Audit Team Members are suitably skilled, trained and experienced in this field. ILTP Road Safety staff are trained by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA), to international standards. The ILTP Road Safety Audit Team have fulfilled all statutory requirements of on-site experience and training to ensure that the team is fully accredited and approved by the NRA.

 

ILTP have Road Safety Audit teams ready to carry out work across the country from our offices in Dublin, Limerick and Cork, meaning a very short lead in time to carry out our Audits.
