Road Safety Audit and Road Safety Review Safer Roads

ARSC conference 2018

Although there is good awareness of road safety auditing (RSA) as a proactive technique for identifying and mitigating road safety related risks throughout Australasia and internationally, local practices in procuring, managing and conducting audits can vary between jurisdictions. The benefits of more effectively guiding practitioners towards good practice are obvious, as well as the need to better integrate current Safe System thinking into the RSA process. To this end, ARRB was engaged by Austroads in 2017 to manage a revision to the current Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Road Safety Audit (Austroads 2009). This paper presents the scope, method and key outcomes of the revision of the existing guide.
