Why is training so important?
Following the creation of the UN Targets 3 & 4, and the release of the WHO Global Status Report on Road Safety last year, it is critical that we rapidly build the skills of engineers, auditors and professionals able to undertake iRAP assessments. We have to scale up safer road infrastructure for all road users on an unprecedented level if we are going to help the world reduce the 1.35 million road traffic deaths worldwide every year.

iRAP Star Rating For Design Online Video Series
The SR4D tool empowers designers and road engineers to assess the road safety of a design and improve its safety star rating before the implementation of civil works. It enables the Star Rating Methodology to be streamlined into the road design process.
This online tool plays a critical part in working towards the United Nations Global Road Safety Targets set last year, in particular UN SDG global road safety Target 3: By 2030, all new roads achieve technical standards for all road users that takes into account road safety, or meet a three star rating or better.
