Advanced Road Safety Audit and Engineering, ManchesterBook Now
Start Date:04/10/2016 09:00:00
End Date:05/10/2016 17:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0417

In 2014 1,775 people died in traffic accidents in Great Britain, a 4% increase from 2013. Although Great Britain remains one of the best performing countries in the world when it comes to road safety, there are still improvements that can be made to reduce the number of deaths and injuries occurring on our roads. This course is split over two days, on the first day delegates will examine 'human factors' associated with road safety and will particularly focus on the implementation of the 'safe systems' approach to casualty reduction and its relevance in road safety audit and applied engineering practice, as one way of ensuring that safety is given sufficient consideration in the design process. Day 2 covers international road safety engineering and audit process, with a focus on the World Health Organisation (WHO) International Decade of Action and it compares and contrasts typical UK practices and conditions with those likely to be encountered internationally.

Operating local bus services in the face of change - A view from Trent BartonBook Now
Start Date:04/10/2016 18:30:00
End Date:04/10/2016 20:30:00
Event Code:STG0337
4th October 2016, 18:00 for 18:30 - 20:30
Where: Room G57, Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College, Leek Road, Stoke, ST4 2RU - New venue!

Speaker: Jeff Counsell FCILT, Managing Director, Trent Barton

Operating any commercial business has its challenges, predicting customer numbers, key investment decisions, competition, the economy and even the weather has an effect.  So, 30 years after the bus industry was privatised and deregulated to encourage greater levels of competition into the market, why do Government think that it’s time for change?

The new Buses Bill will offer local authorities the opportunity to gain control of bus services in their area through the introduction of a franchising model, or at the very least via stronger legally binding partnership arrangements.  The key question is has deregulation failed?  It seems the answer depends very much on to whom you ask the question of.

A light buffet will also be provided.

Brexit: The possible challenges for movers of people and goodsBook Now

End Date:04/10/2016 20:45:00
Event Code:SG0345

When: 4th October 2016, 18:30 (for 19:00) – 20:45
Where: Sussex Downs College, 1 Mountfield Road, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2XH - Directions
Meeting Point: Cliffe Building - Room 313

Speaker: Stephen Rinsler FCILT FIOM, CEO, ELUPEG Ltd, Director, Bisham Consulting, Trustee and Honorary Secretary, CILT International

The vote was momentous but its ramifications have so many levels:

• How do we unravel ourselves, and what do we unravel?
• What should we be negotiating?
• What effects might occur and can the Government offset them?
• What does the change in trade flows mean for UK supply chains?
• What about our suppliers: can they cope?

None of these questions the speaker suspects will be defined properly before we meet but we need to influence the agenda, to help shape the agenda and to understand the risks for our supply chains: freight and passenger.
