New Approaches to Highway Safety Analysis
Instructor-led Training (ILT)
TRAINING LEVEL: Accomplished
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 22 Maximum: 30
The primary purpose of this course is to help attendees gain an understanding of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) process, safety engineering principles and human factors issues related to traffic and road safety. It also provides the participant with an explanation of the latest methods for identifying collision causes and selecting cost-effective safety improvements. Finally, this course will serve as a prerequisite for those who will be utilizing SafetyAnalyst, a set of software tools currently under development that are designed to assist State and local agencies to improve the decisionmaking process in implementing safety improvement projects.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Describe the components of the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)
Explain safety engineering principles relevant to planning for highway safety improvement measures specific to three types of crashes ¿ roadway departures, intersection-related, and pedestrian
Describe the relevance and impact of human factors in the planning of highway safety improvement measures for three types of crashes ¿ roadway departures, intersection-related, and pedestrian
Determine strategies for the selection of cost-effective highway safety improvement measures for three types of crashes ¿ roadway departures, intersection-related, and pedestrian
This course is intended primarily for State DOT staff involved with the Highway Safety Improvement Program, and for FHWA safety specialists. These specialists include engineers, planners, and technicians.
