Training: Safer Roads By Design: Road Safety Audit
Date: February 26-28, 2018
Location: Alexandria, VA
Organization: International Road Federation (IRF)

Preventive risk assessment tools, such as road safety audits and inspections, are an effective and essential instrument to help road authorities reduce the number of crashes and casualties.

Risk assessment procedures can typically be applied at successive stages of road planning, design, opening and operations. They all serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they help network road operators and city traffic departments identify engineering weaknesses and hazardous road sections, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data.

In 2015, 82.5% of countries worldwide reported implementing one or more of these procedures, yet over 70% of roads surveyed by the International Road Assessment Program are rated under 2 Stars in a 5 Star Rating System across at least one user category. These figures suggest a startling disconnect between the theoretical merits of road infrastructure safety management and the actual results experienced by countless road users every day.

As a global leader in road safety, the International Road Federation (IRF) is well positioned to present state of the art methodologies and cutting edge technologies that have been field tested to reduce traffic injury risk through auditing & inspections. Workshop attendees will receive the necessary theoretical background and applied practices, with specific application to the roads and highways of roads, to ensure their risk identification programs are effective and impactful.
