RBG Accident Compensation Procedures

RAP has tested a number of procedures for compensating RBGs who become injured whilst performing road-building tasks. RAP has insured RBG members through an insurance company against accidents during road construction activities. But the policies offered by the company did not cover all the issues and there was considerable delay on payment. Therefore, RAP revised and adopted an internal compensation policy in June 2006 and amended in July 2009, in March 2012, May 2014 and in August 2014 and in March 2017. Now based on these experiences, RAP intends to ‘self-insure’ i.e. absorb these medical treatment costs to compensate for the injured or disable or death cases as a project expenses.

SED Manual for field staff in English

The SED procedures manual has been developed to clearly define the overall approach of the SED component of the third phase of the Rural Access Programme (RAP3) and the implementation methods to be used for each of the activities within the SED component. The manual, and the procedures that it outlines, have been developed based on the lessons learned from the first year of RAP3, and incorporates the relevant parts of partner’s guidelines along with RAP3 directives.  Wherever this document is in conflict with existing agreements between RAP3, partners, and/or third parties, those official agreements will supersede these guidelines.

LRN Road Safety Assessment Guidelines

The Nepal Road Sector Assessment Study found that the rate of road fatalities (per 100,000 inhabitants per year) has risen to 17.1, compared to Cambodia 12.3, Malaysia 3.5 Australia 1.0 and the United Kingdom 0.7. The study also confirms that the rate of accidents is now increasing by over 25% each year. RAP is helping to pioneer road safety assessment as part of the annual road condition surveys that are used to determine maintenance works which should allow road safety engineering responses to be funded through district maintenance budget.

ARAMP Guidelines

These are related to the 5 year DTMPs but cover the period of one year only. These are derived from both the DTMP and the annual road condition surveys conducted by the districts to determine the LRN works programme for a given year using various sources of funding including that of programmes such as RAP.
