The Safe System Hierarchy of Control Framework for Local Roads

McTiernan, D, Rensen, A (Peer reviewed)


ARSC conference 2016

There remains a significant gap amongst practitioners between understanding and application of the Safe System approach, particularly on local government road networks.

The reasons for this are as complex as they are diverse, but a key deficiency is a lack of a structured framework that guides practitioners through the thought process of analysing, evaluating and determining the opportunities for developing Safe System solutions to managing their road safety risk.

This paper will outline a framework designed to assist practitioners apply the Safe System approach to their road networks and then allow them to communicate the outcomes to a diverse audience of technical, management, community and elected representatives.
