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.
This course provides an in-depth exploration of the latest knowledge in road safety and introduces methodologies for selecting and applying the most suitable road engineering solutions to specific site conditions.
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.
This course introduces scientific principles for forecasting the benefits of road safety projects. The goal is to estimate and defend reductions in fatalities and serious injuries, to assign dollar valuations to proposed improvements, and to compare these benefits to project or program costs.
