Main Roads, in cooperation with local government, conducts crash location investigations throughout Western Australia. These investigations are road environment assessments, often triggered by the occurrence of a serious injury crash (eg fatality). Crash reconstruction and crash simulation are not undertaken as part of these investigations.
Persons completing crash location investigations as team leaders need to be aware that there is a real possibility of their being called to give evidence at either an inquisitorial or adversial court hearing. In recognition of this, Main Roads has established minimum training requirements for persons leading crash investigations.
We require that team leaders for crash investigations in Western Australia meet the following requirements;
A Crash Location Report team leader shall be an accredited Main Roads Crash Investigator. The crash investigation team shall have a minimum of two members, (desirably three members) including at least one representative from Main Roads, and preferably onerepresentative from Local Government/Other Agency or one person independent of these organisations.
However, we provide no warranty as to the suitability of any of the persons listed below to lead a road environment assessment. Persons or organisations seeking to engage a crash investigation team leader should satisfy themselves that the person has suitable prior experience and is capable of providing the required standard of services.
