Transportation engineers have developed a system to identify and address roadway safety problems. The Highway Safety Analysis workshop will assist local and state level agencies with relevant information on the stepwise procedure.
The course's focus is on the identification of hazardous locations and counter-measures for alleviating the safety hazards. Other tasks that are needed to accomplish this goal include the management and analysis of crash records and also a before-after analysis of the results of implemented counter-measures.
This course will prepare one for taking charge of a roadway safety program either as an employee of an agency or a consultant. The topics covered by this course are included in the scope of the examination for PTOE certificate of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.
This course is for technicians, local government employees, consultants and engineers involved with safety problems of roads.
