DRSC Alumni Course: Pro-active Road Safety Assessment

Pro-active Road Safety Assessment

About the Course

Carrying out a Road Safety Impact Assessment and Road Safety Audit can have many benefits, ranging from improved traffic flow, contribution to climate goals, and decreased societal healthcare costs to increased economic revenues. Individuals, citizens, economic operators, cities and society as a whole benefit from improved use of the road.

This training course is developed by Delft Road Safety Courses (DRSC) and is open exclusively to DRSC alumni. It is aimed at participants who are involved in the preparation and development of infrastructure projects, policies, campaigns, and/or plans where it is to understand the audit and assessment process and have insight into the role that they play in improving road safety.

It builds on concepts introduced in the Delft Road Safety Course around Road Safety Impact Assessment and Road Safety Audit and is intended to deepen participants’ knowledge and application of pro-active road safety assessments.
