Cutting Edge Tools and Methods for Cost Effectively Reducing Crashes

About the Workshop

Have you thought or struggled with questions like…

• How can we reduce crashes on our multimodal facilities with limited funds?
• What tools and methods are available to help make informed decisions about safety?
• How can we identify projects that reduce crashes and improve efficiency?
• How do we know where and how to invest our limited funds to reduce crashes?
• How we do know if the improvements we made really reduced crashes?
• How can we manage our risk and liability in our day to day project decisions?
• What tools can we use to better support design variance processes to facilitate safe and practical designs?

If these or similar questions are ones you have and want answered, this full day workshop is for you.

The transportation profession now has a suite of tools available to help quantify and understand how we can reduce crashes on our multimodal roadway facilities. These tools include AASHTO’s recently published Highway Safety Manual (HSM), FHWA’s Crash Modification Factors Clearinghouse, FHWA’s Guide to Developing Quality Crash Modification Factors, and FHWA’s Road Safety Audit Guidelines. Project examples and hands-on activities in this full day workshop will demonstrate how these and other resources/tools can work together to inform your system management and project specific decisions.

Who Should Attend

Staff and senior level transportation professionals who are interested in incorporating quantitative safety analysis into projects and/or conducting safety focused projects or studies.

The workshop will be led by members of Kittelson & Associates, Inc.’s project team on NCHRP 17-36: Production of the First Edition Highway Safety Manual as well as members of Kittelson & Associates, Inc. with experience conducting road safety audits, and applying multiple safety analysis tools and resources to inform system management and project decisions.
