European forum of road tunnel safety officers 2009

The EU Directive 2004/54/EC of 29 April 2004 on minimum safety requirements for tunnels in the trans-European road network has introduced the Safety Officer as a new player in charge of coordinating all preventive and safeguard measures to ensure the safety of users and operational staff. During the last 2-3 years, Safety Officers have been appointed throughout Europe and have started to perform their tasks to improve road tunnel safety. While a number of questions are not completely answered regarding this new position and the related activities, few exchanges of experience have been possible yet, due to the dispersal of the Safety Officers and the lack of appropriate means, apart from a few national groups.
