NHI's Safety Data and Analysis Fundamentals course helps transportation professionals understand safety data and collection methods, including how to interpret safety data and use it to support key decision-making efforts. It's important for data collection practices to keep up with the latest safety data analysis tools and methodologies, to accurately forecast trends. Accurate forecasts help identify optimal times for project deployment and help improve program results.
This web-based training provides the knowledge necessary to identify weaknesses in current practices and strengthen the way safety data is used in transportation programs, projects, and communities. Course participants learn about key safety data types and terms, as well as sources and collection methods. Participants study the data analysis process and several methods of data analysis, and also explore and interpret various examples throughout the training. They leave the training with the skills and knowledge necessary to evaluate data and to enhance data collection and storage methods, with awareness of the potential, as well as the limitations of these methods.
