Our LGTAG members at GAIST are holding an event with our LCRIG partners that may well interest a wider section of our membership. Details below
Highways safety inspections are a statutory obligation for councils. Vital for keeping roads safe, they also provide authorities with critical evidence necessary for defending against claims.
However, these inspections consume much time and resource. Typically carried out by a slow-moving vehicle, or on foot, some routes may also require traffic management with its associated costs and disruption. Due to the huge success of their first webinar, hosted by Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG), Gaist will be holding a further session to unveil their modern solution that addresses many of the challenges you face in conducting your highways safety inspection.
Gaist would like to invite you to find out more about the new product SafetyView and how it can help you introduce significant cost and time efficiencies – enabling you to manage your safety inspections in a way never seen before.
Please click here to register for this webinar which will be taking place at 11am on Thursday 16th July.
