  • Practical Road Safety Auditing, Third edition
  • Practical Road Safety Auditing explores the systematic process for checking the safety of new and improved road schemes for the benefit of future road users.

    An effective Road Safety Audit ensures that all highways schemes operate as safely as is practicable by minimising the chance of future collisions and reducing the risk in their severity. The third edition of Practical Road Safety Auditing provides engineers with clear and comprehensive guidance regarding the new Certificate of Competency, launched by the Highways Agency as part of the new Safety Audit Standard in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges.

    Not only will a successful Audit help road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, bus users, equestrians and those with visual and mobility impairments, but an understanding and appreciation of an efficient Road Safety Audit will also improve design and evaluation processes for both new and existing road schemes across the world.

    This new edition shares the latest theory and practice from regions such as Europe, South East Asia, Australasia, the Middle East, Canada and the Americas, using real-life examples and case studies of successes and failures to enable the reader to apply best practice to their own road scheme.

    Practical Road Safety Auditing includes:

    ·         Up-to-date new research and control data from the industry to help readers carry out a successful Road Safety Audit

    ·         New Certificate of Competency requirements for engineers in the UK and a brief discussion of practice in other countries

    ·         Coverage of other types of design audits, including technical, cycle, pedestrian, mobility, Non-Motorised User Audit and Quality Audit

    ·         Current issues and legal implications of the Road Safety Audit process.

    Written by practising Road Safety Auditors, who between them have carried out over 2,000 Road Safety Audits, this book will teach, inform and guide all practitioners commissioning audits, those carrying them out, and those whose schemes are being audited.

  • Floods and Reservoir Safety, 4th edition
  • This fourth edition of Floods and Reservoir Safety provides authoritative guidance on flood protection standards, flood magnitude and freeboard -guidance which is essential for engineers who are responsible for the design and inspection of reservoirs.

    In the period since publication of the previous edition, there have been changes to extreme flood estimation in the form of rainfall depth–duration–frequency and rainfall–runoff models, reservoir safety legislation, and adoption of a risk-based approach to that legislation. 

    Floods and Reservoir Safety, fourth edition, addresses these changes and in particular includes amends to:

    • -legislative changes in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
    • -the Flood Estimation Handbook (FEH) (IOH, 1999)
    • -recent research into extreme rainfall
    • -guidance on risk assessment for UK reservoirs
    • -research on wave overtopping of embankments.

    A desire for brevity and clarity of principle has led to this document being relatively concise. Floods and Reservoir Safety should be read in conjunction with the latest revision of the FEH, in particular those sections that apply to reservoir safety flood inflow estimation.

    A glossary of terms used in this guide is included with appendices, together with a schematic diagram, showing the relationship between the principal terms in the guide.

    Floods and Reservoir Safety is essential reading for those individuals who bear the personal responsibility that comes from being appointed to the statutory panel of engineers qualified to design and also inspect reservoirs in the UK.
