Road Safety Audit Workshop
Road Safety Audits are an integral part of the safe system approach at all stages of the road construction and maintenance process. The objective of a road safety audit is to identify foreseeable hazards for all road users.
The road safety audit process provides a reasonable, but not absolute, hazard identification method for all road users, focusing on reducing fatal and serious injuries.
