Course Description


Traffic safety represents a major area where the improvements can be made, mainly as it saves human lives. To know the “why?” we need to determine “what and how it happened.”

This GLOMACS Traffic Accident Investigation training course represents broad topics on investigating road traffic accidents, which is placed in the framework of immediate usefulness. It will take you to step – by – step process of the accident investigation while highlighting the crucial details which are to be used in expected output from the accident investigation. Also, modern technologies will enable the investigators to collect pieces of evidence in a safe, fast and efficient manner, to be able to reduce the time needed for traffic flow to continue uninterrupted.

This course extends its reach to incorporate these new technologies; also, the traffic incidents are a significant part of the problems related to health and safety. It provides valuable insight into the process of investigation of the incidents. This could help, not only traffic engineers to better investigate traffic accidents, but health and safety professionals. As well to better understand the complex nature of traffic-related incidents and provides the required knowledge on how to implement them into the investigation related to the health and safety of the drivers, as well as other people who are driving or are in any other way involved in traffic. This course is essential for anyone interested in road safety as a whole and provides a brief description of on-scene accident investigation methods that exist today.

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Securing the scene of the accident, evidence identification and the on-scene measurement
  • Evidence preservation, scaled on – scene diagram production and evidence verification
  • Vehicle examination, photogrammetric, advanced techniques of on-scene measurement and evidence compatibility
  • Usage of available software or data for the further in-depth identification of the evidence
  • Traffic accident reconstruction
  • Modern technologies used in an on-scene investigation


The accident investigation is a field of practice that requires specialized study, training and experience. This GLOMACS training course is focused on the initial step towards the accident reconstruction and analysis, and will provide the delegates adequate knowledge to answer the questions: What? Where? When? Who? What with? Whom with? Why? How?

At the end of this GLOMACS training course, participants will learn to:

  • How to investigate and reconstruct traffic accident
  • A better understanding of the investigation process 
  • Learn how to reconstruct traffic accident through traffic evidence
  • Use traffic simulations to reconstruct cause and consequence of traffic accident
  • Learn to secure the scene

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Traffic Accident Investigation training course will use proven adult learning techniques with the focus on exercises, different case studies and solving actual problems. Through the guided examples, videos, photos, and questioning, it is ensured that all learners can have the best possible chance at comprehending the required knowledge and skills. 

Organisational Impact

The participants on this GLOMACS training course will: 

  • Determine risks involved in the everyday traffic
  • Identify the best options of collecting evidences from the scene
  • Gain understanding on road safety in the road network
  • Create a comprehensive traffic crash investigation report
  • Reduce paperwork and implement modern technologies
  • Provide beneficial improvement options without massive investments
  • Reduce costs and time lost in incident investigation and analysis

Personal Impact

The participants will obtain fundamental, theoretical and practical knowledge as well as integrated information about traffic safety, traffic accident, accident investigations and reconstruction of a traffic accident, as well as the creation of a road safety database.

With this GLOMACS Traffic Accident Investigation training course, the participants are going to learn methods that help both experienced and novice investigators. This will provide the knowledge needed to avoid setbacks in the incident investigation, as well as the ways to address shortcomings in the initial investigation by applying the principles of the investigation.

  • Learn how to conduct effective incident investigation and analysis
  • Gain knowledge in on-scene fact-finding
  • Enhance their knowledge in evidence identification
  • Understand how to investigate and report traffic accidents properly
  • Reduce time required for on-scene investigation with improving quality of the investigation
