Course Information

Road traffic system

April 2017

Safe System is an evidence-based approach, building upon existing best practice in results-focused road safety management and promoting innovation based on well-established scientific safety principles. Safe System targets all elements of road traffic system design, operation and use, to better accommodate common human error and known human tolerance to injury. The long-term goal, supported by interim quantitative targets, is for roads and traffic which are eventually free from death and serious injury.

Course Description

This short course has been designed to engage decision-makers and practitioners who are taking road safety forward at national and local levels. It explains the scientific basis of Safe System, key strategic and design aspects and its alignment with a range of societal objectives.  Examples of how to get started are presented as well as its application based on experience in Northern Europe (in particular), Australasia and also with reference to some interesting international development projects.

The aim of this two-day course is to provide attendees with a broad introduction to Safe System road safety management and a window on implementation experience and guidance in a range of settings. At the end of Day 2 attendees should be able to understand the scope of Safe System in their day-to-day road safety activity and options for building on their current approaches and practice.
