A road safety audit is a formal examination of a future road or traffic project, or an existing road or road-related area, in which a team of appropriately qualified persons identifies deficiencies with the potential to cause crashes in the project. A road safety audit is not simply a compliance check against design standards or other technical guidance. Strict adherence to design standards does not guarantee safety since standards are not always written with safety as a primary objective. A Road Safety Audit considers the safety of all users to proactively identify issues that may cause harm to users and makes recommendations to remove or mitigate these issues.
This three-day training program will teach practitioners how to conduct a Road Safety Audit in accordance with the 2023 Good Roads Road Safety Audit Guidelines.
This course is relevant to individuals who wish to become a Road Safety Auditor or those required to manage the Road Safety Audit process and its outcomes. Upon successful completion of this training, participants will be eligible to register as a Road Safety Auditor in Ontario.
The interactive Workshop is a combination of theory, practical exercises, and fieldwork.
