Road Safety Audits

"A road safety audit is a formal examination of a future road or traffic project or an existing road, in which an independent, qualified team reports on the project’s crash potential and safety performance. A road safety audit has the greatest potential for improving safety.”

- Austroads - Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Road Safety Audit

Road works that include a Road Safety Audit during the design and/or development phase can be delivered with the confidence they are less likely to need future interventions and upgrades.

Ensuring this happens starts with a simple policy; implementation of that policy is easy when you have Accredited Road Safety Auditors active in your area.

The interactive and self-paced learning approach of the course allows flexibility in learning. The course teaches how to identify potential safety issues and identify countermeasures before actual work begins; a valuable skill for team members who want to reduce both costs, and the risk and
severity of crashes in their networks.

Formal examination of a proposed road project or an existing road through the Road Safety Audit process puts Local Governments on the front foot in improving safety and reducing expenditure.
