Road Safety Audits and Road Safety Audit Reviews
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.
