Road Safety 365 – Webinar Series

Zoom

When: Mar 30, 2021 - Apr 1, 2021

The Road Safety 365 Workshop provides local agencies with practical and effective ways to mainstream safety solutions into their day-to-day activities and project development process.

This webinar series focuses on processes for incorporating safety into all aspects of local and rural road projects, and on making safety a priority through inclusion in the traditional decision-making process—365 days a year. The course stresses the importance of road safety and illustrates how it can be integrated into local transportation project development at all stages: planning, design, construction, implementation, operations, and maintenance. Through practical exercises and facilitator-led discussions, the emphasis is on operations and maintenance to reflect the predominant, day-to-day responsibilities of local transportation agencies. The benefits and potential cost savings of safety initiatives are shown using examples from local agencies

Learning Outcomes:
After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the need for making roads safer.
  • Separate safety myths from reality.
  • Demonstrate how to “read the road.”
  • Describe practical and low-cost countermeasures to improve safety, both on existing roads and during the design stage.
  • Identify effective ways of encouraging communities to make their roads safer.
  • Create an action list for implementing at least one safety improvement at their local agency.
