Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

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.

Designed for road safety audit practitioners who have not conducted a sufficient number of road safety audits to remain on the register of accredited auditors. The course may also be useful for accredited auditors wishing to hone their skills and knowledge.
