HSIP Overview Executive Summary

HSIP Project Identification, NHI-FHWA-380111
The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Project Identification course provides the background and information necessary for identifying HSIP projects. Background information includes data analysis concepts such as regression-to-the mean, safety performance functions, and the Empirical Bayes method. Information is presented on the network screening process, including approaches that support systemic safety improvements and those aimed at identifying specific sites with potential for safety improvement.  The course will enable participants to choose between different network screening methods by distinguishing between the data needs, strengths and limitations of the different approaches; identify and evaluate different countermeasures; and prioritize projects based on measures of economic effectiveness.

HSIP Project Evaluation, NHI-FHWA-380112
The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Project Evaluation course provides a description of safety effectiveness evaluation, an overview of fundamentals needed to perform safety effectiveness evaluation, and information about why safety effectiveness evaluation is important to a Highway Safety Improvement Program. Examples of project evaluation methodologies that account for regression-to-the-mean are discussed and participants are given an opportunity to calculate simple observational before-after studies, observational before-after studies with Empirical Bayes adjustment, and observational before after studies using comparison groups.
