Highway Safety Manual (HSM)

lunch provided

The Highway Safety Manual (HSM) is intended to provide practitioners with the best factual information and tools to facilitate roadway design and operational decisions based on explicit consideration of their safety consequences. Currently, there are no such widely accepted tools available for agencies responsible for managing the safety of our roadways and it results in safety considerations carrying little weight in the project development process. The HSM can be used to quantify and predict the safety performance of the variety of elements considered in road planning, design, maintenance, construction, and operations.
