Passive Safety UK invites you to their 2024 Passive Safety Conference and Workshop. Whether you are very familiar with passive safety design but need a refresher/updating, or you would just like to learn the basics, this Conference is for you. This is a chance for you to learn about the role Crash Friendly, Passively Safe design plays as part of a Safe System Approach.

The conference will include a hands-on workshop and will also be integrated with a large exhibition of passive products and experts from industry will be on hand to explain how their products work. At the event we will also be presenting the new ARTSM Guidelines on Passive Safety, which will include information on the recent changes to the UK National Annexe to EN 12767.

This event is endorsed by The Institute of Highway Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation and a full days CPD credit is available.

This Conference is also endorsed by National Highways.

“Passively safe structures play a key role in making the road environment more forgiving. However, it is important that designers are aware of and understand the current standard to allow them to design and specify appropriate products to ensure that the positive safety benefits are achieved. National Highways welcomes initiatives to educate and inform designers and specifiers to improve safety and I am happy to support this conference”.
