Road Safety Audits (RSA)
RSA For Locals
RSA training workshops are designed to introduce RSAs as an effective tool that can help to reduce injuries and fatalities on your road network. The workshop helps local road agency professionals understand basic RSA concepts, risk and safety, and common issues. Participants gain experience in conducting an RSA. The workshop demonstrates that low cost safety improvements may be implemented quickly to reduce fatalities and severe crashes.

Road safety audit team reviewing roadway plans
National Highway Institute
The National Highway Institute, the training arm of the Federal Highway Administration, offers a course on Road Safety Audits (RSA) and Road Safety Audit Reviews (RSAR). Participants in this course will learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a new, proactive approach to reduce accidents and their severity: Road Safety Audits (RSA) and Road Safety Audit Reviews (RSAR). These techniques provide an examination of a roadway by an independent, qualified audit team. The RSA is a way for an agency to improve safety and to communicate to the public how they are working toward accident reductions. This course includes "hands-on" application of the training materials, including topics such as: RSA definition and history, stages and how to conduct a RSA, and legal considerations. The course number is 380069.
