International Course on Traffic Safety in Work Zones

25 March 2019

IRF (Geneva) together with the Qatar Transportation & Traffic Safety Center and Qatar University are pleased to announce the International Course on Traffic Safety in Work Zones which will be held from 24th to 26th September 2019 in Doha, Qatar.

Motorists constitute more than eighty percent (80%) of the fatalities in work zones. Road Authorities are responsible for the safety of these motorists and they must establish and enforce the criteria that contractors must follow to design a safe work zone.

The Qatar Work Zone Traffic Management Guide is the applicable standard which will be covered in this course. Attendees will learn how to design a safe work zone and they will learn about the 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 will be among the topics discussed.

Another important part of the Work Zones is the use of vertical signs and road markings, which will also be covered in depth on this course.
