This three-day course will give you the knowledge and skills required to conduct a road safety audit. This course is designed with and approved by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).

This course is approved for road safety auditor accreditation.

Course outline

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.

This course will cover:

  • basic and theoretical concepts of road safety audits
  • hands-on exercises for detailed design audits and existing roads audits, including day and night site visits
  • conducting a road safety audit following the Safe System approach

Course facilitators

  • Associate Professor Md. Shimul Haque
  • Dr Mark King
  • Jason Deller

Investigation and treatment of crash locations

This two-day course will give you the skills to conduct a black spot treatment exercise, and how to use a road safety engineering toolkit to identify road safety problems and select suitable countermeasures.

This course is based on the Austroads Guide to Road Safety, Part 8: Treatment of Crash Locations, and incorporates the Safe System approach.

Course outline

This course will cover:

  • an introduction to a systematic process of identifying black spots
  • diagnosing safety issues
  • designing countermeasures
  • conducting an economic appraisal
  • assessing the effectiveness of an implemented countermeasure through monitoring and evaluation.

Build an understanding of the principles of the human factors of traffic behaviour within the Safe System approach. The course covers how to apply these to the design and effectiveness of road safety and injury prevention interventions that target human behaviour.
