Adam Ritzinger from ARRB Group responded to an iRAP invitation to work as an iRAP volunteer to help with road safety work in the Philippines.
Adam worked at the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), in Manila for two weeks in July 2012, alongside iRAP and DPWH staff.
The work mainly focussed on devising road safety countermeasure and treatment plans, to address the outcomes of iRAP assessments, and inspecting sites.
Adam also assisted iRAP staff in giving road safety presentations and training on road safety treatments to approximately 60 staff.
Adam describes his time as “a very rewarding experience – working with locals, helping to address real road safety issues, new and challenging experiences”
iRAP kindly acknowledged Adam’s valuable input as a volunteer, and recently presented Adam with an award.
