    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.

    This specialized course on Road Safety Audits and Safe Roads by Design offers an in-depth exploration into the critical aspects of road safety and effective design principles. Aimed at engineers, planners, and road safety professionals, the training provides a comprehensive understanding of how to conduct thorough road safety audits at various stages of road development. Participants will engage in learning about the latest standards and methodologies for identifying and mitigating potential road safety issues. The course also covers the principles of 'Safe System' approach and 'Vision Zero' concepts, emphasizing the importance of designing roads that inherently reduce the risk of accidents and enhance safety for all road users. Through a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical case studies, attendees will acquire the skills necessary to design, evaluate, and improve road networks to ensure maximum safety. This training is essential for professionals committed to creating safer roads and reducing the incidence of road accidents in their communities.

    The Safe System approach revolutionizes road safety by rejecting the belief that deaths and serious injuries are inevitable outcomes of human error in traffic. This innovative perspective underscores the vital role of well-designed and meticulously maintained roads in significantly reducing the likelihood of accidents. Safe System roads are inherently 'forgiving,' designed to lessen the severity of accidents when they do occur.

    Selecting a road safety countermeasure can thus be a life-or-death decision: specifiers need to understand certain criteria with regards to available systems or design scenarios, and also have a clear understanding of applicable standards, as well as site-specific conditions where they are to be used. This course reviews the state of knowledge and presents processes to determine appropriate road engineering countermeasures based on these site conditions.
