As the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation unveiled the winner of this year’s Road Safety Award, Road Safety Analysis picked up the top honour for MAST Online.
MAST is the analysis tool, delivered online allowing ease of access to road casualty data and integrated socio-demographic profiling of casualties and drivers.
The award aims to identify and celebrate good road safety practice and the judging panel were keen to recognise the way in which MAST online has contributed to the road safety community nationally; their comments concluded:
“MAST creates the circumstances for all education and publicity campaigns to be properly targeted and efficient initiatives, which is particularly important with constrained budgets and fewer easy sites left to treat with conventional engineering measures.”
Accepting the award, RSA Marketing Director Dan Campsall commented “This is the culmination of over 5 years working on laying the foundations for and developing the MAST project. We are hugely grateful for the support of many professionals nationwide who have helped to shape MAST & make it the vital tool it has become.”
RSA Technical Director & MAST Project Manager Bruce Walton expressed his delight at winning the award and his aspirations for MAST in the future: “The feedback from users shows just how widely MAST is now being used to develop innovative schemes on a solid evidential basis. We are really pleased that this award recognises their good work and underlines the important role that MAST can play in taking road safety forward during tough economic times. With further developments soon to be unveiled the already unrivalled insight that MAST can offer professionals is only set to improve.”
RSA will be presenting a summary of the work already undertaken at the CIHT Showcase Seminar on 21st June for which spaces are still available (visit www.ciht.org.uk)
