Performing effective road safety audits/assessments, (RSAs), improves safety and demonstrates to the public an agency's dedication to crash reduction. An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent audit team. The RSA training provides practical information on how to conduct an RSA, select a location, and build an independent, multi-disciplinary team. The costs, time, benefits, and common myths and concerns surrounding RSAs will be discussed. Participants learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a new proactive approach. Emphasis is placed on using low cost safety improvements as well as understanding the interaction between the highway and all road users.

The training includes hands-on application of the training materials, which includes information on each stage of a road safety audit and easy-to-use-prompt lists. A copy of "FHWA Road Safety Audit Guidelines" is provided.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Express the road safety audit process terminology
  • Perform a simple road safety audit, as a member of a team
  • Assess the benefits of a road safety audit on a local or statewide basis


Personnel who are likely to serve on a road safety audit team including Federal, State, local transportation personnel, first responders and consultants who conduct highway safety studies should also attend.
