Road Safety Audits: From Concept to Results
Nov 7, 2022 - Nov 17, 2022
Road safety audit and inspections serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they also assist network highway operators and city traffic departments in identifying engineering weaknesses and hazardous locations, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data.
Almost 85% of countries surveyed by the World Health Organization currently report implementing road safety audits or inspections, and it is important for all road safety professionals to understand how to design and implement them correctly for maximum safety benefits.
This course includes access to the IRF Road Safety Audit Team Leader Certification Program. This course will be delivered by instructors from the MicroTraffic road safety team with select guest speakers.
