Road safety audit: a safe system approach

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills required to conduct a road safety audit. It also provides an opportunity for you to apply these skills. The course emphasises the Safe System Approach, which aims to minimise human errors and the severity of their consequences by considering safer roads and roadsides, safer vehicles and safer speeds. In addition to enhancing your knowledge of the basic and theoretical concepts of road safety audits, this course has hands-on exercises for detailed design-audits and existing roads audits, including day and night site visits.

This course has been designed in conjunction with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) to satisfy all the requirements for an approved road safety audit course for the purpose of accreditation as a road safety auditor.

Investigation and treatment of crash locations

This course incorporates hands-on training that allows you to conduct a black spot treatment exercise, following the step-by-step process. It also trains you in how to use a road safety engineering toolkit for identifying road safety problems and selecting suitable countermeasures.

Sessions in this course introduce you to a step-by-step process. These steps include:

  • identification of black spots
  • diagnosis of safety issues
  • designing countermeasures
  • conducting an economic appraisal
  • assessing the effectiveness of an implemented countermeasure through monitoring and evaluation.

The contents of this course are based on the Austroads Guide to Road Safety, Part 8: Treatment of Crash Locations.
