This course, Implementing Human Factors into Roadway Design: A Workshop on How to Use and Apply the Human Factors Guidelines (HFG) for Road Systems, helps participants gain an understanding of the HFG and how they can apply the principles to road system design and operational decisions. This course provides an overview of human factors as they relate to the roadway environment and describes why it is necessary to incorporate human factors in the design and operation of roadways as a complement to existing standards and manuals for roadway design and operation. Finally, the course offers a review of specific guidelines, as well as scenario-based case studies that allow attendees to apply the HFG to real roadway situations.
The primary audience for the HFG course is composed of the following:
Engineers (state departments of transportation (DOT), metropolitan planning organizations (MPO), counties, local municipalities, and consultants to the public agencies)
Safety (non-engineers) Professionals (state DOTs, MPOs, counties, local municipalities, and consultants to the public agencies)
