Event description
This course provides participants with the key skills and tools to undertake a Safe System Assessment.

About this event

Safe System Assessments are the best-practice method to ensure safe roads because they check that Safe System principles are embedded in road infrastructure projects. Safe System Assessments are mandatory processes for large projects in Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and New Zealand, and are being used by Transport for NSW in the planning phase of major road projects.

This course provides participants with the key skills and tools to undertake a Safe System Assessment in accordance with the Austroads Safe System Assessment Framework. It also covers the content of the Victorian and South Australian Guidelines, the Qld DTMR Road Safety Policy and the established processes in New Zealand and New South Wales.

NATIONAL ROAD SAFETY STRATEGY

The Inquiry into the National Road Safety Strategy states that the : “[The Safe System Assessment Framework] needs to be used on all road infrastructure projects at all levels of government and within the private sector.” While road safety audits can pick up specific design deficiencies, Safe System Assessments are still required to ensure that a harm elimination agenda is being pursued.
