The Safe System is internationally regarded as the best practice approach to road safety. Although Australia and New Zealand have been early adopters of the approach since 2004, there has generally been a lack of clarity amongst practitioners on how best to integrate the approach into their daily activities.
This webinar will provide an overview of the new Austroads compendium of knowledge on Safe System treatments and real world experience in the practical application of solutions that can mitigate crash severity. It will outline information covered in a series of workshops on the translation of the Safe System approach, enabling attendees to consider the application of the theories onto their own road networks.
You will gain an understanding of the:
- new Austroads compendium on Safe System infrastructure relating to planning, designing and managing roads and roadsides
- origins of the Safe System and current implementation
- Safe System solutions that can be used to address key crash types
- tools that have been developed to help align infrastructure projects with Safe System outcomes.
Join in a live Q&A with the presenters to ask questions about Safe System infrastructure.
