Enhancing Agilysis’ Analytical Product Delivery

Due to the success of the July events in Leeds and Milton Keynes, Road Safety Analysis and Agilysis are repeating the workshops for road safety professionals on 27th September in London, 5th October in Cardiff and 6th October in Bristol

The events feature two distinct sessions which can be registered for separately; in the morning, we will explore the effective use of road safety data, and in the afternoon, we are examining road user behaviour and evaluation.

Registration is free of charge.


The workshops will be hosted by Richard Owen and Tanya Fosdick and are limited to 25 delegates per session.

Places are available on a first come first served basis. For the London workshops priority will be given to London Boroughs

London Venue: Transport for London Offices, Pier Walk SE10 0ES

Cardiff Venue: Clayton Hotel, St Mary Street CF10 1GD

Bristol Venue: Engine Shed, Station Approach BS1 6QH

Behaviour Change

The second session is designed to help practitioners who want to quickly get to grips with the practicalities of designing and evaluating behaviour change interventions. Issues covered will include:

• Behaviour change in young drivers

• Evaluating multiple campaigns across a region

• Outcomes or outputs – what to measure?

• Strengths and weaknesses in evaluation design

“The most useful thing I got most from the day was around behavioural change. This is a really important area for road safety development, especially as we require a step change in casualty reduction to achieve our aims. It is also a fascinating area of development as it is based on sound principles of psychology” (Behaviour Change workshop attendee)

Effective Use of Data

The session examines four distinct subject areas:

• How to identify high-risk roads

• MOSAIC demographics and the propensity to offend

• Online data visualisation techniques

• Vulnerable road users on strategic vs local roads

The session will feature short presentations and practical examples followed by a group discussion and the opportunity to share best practice. The session will be of great benefit to professionals who already work with transport data, but not necessarily significant experience of using MAST

“Although I've been a data analyst for 13 years I still find these types of workshops useful, and this was no exception. There are always ways of looking at data that I fall out of the habit of using, or I want to develop my knowledge of” (Data workshop attendee)
