The primary aim of this unit is to develop the knowledge and skills required to conduct a road safety audit and to investigate crash sites and propose remedial treatments, and to provide an opportunity for the application of these skills by the course participants.
Road Safety Audit and Investigation and Treatment of Crash Locations are powerful tools for improving the safety of the road network in both proactive and reactive manners. It complements the more traditional reactive treatment approaches such as black spot programs. Although both Road Safety Audit and Treatment of Crash Locations have been utilised by Australian road authorities for a number of years, there remains a lack of suitably skilled people to conduct safety audits and treat crash sites.
Consequently, the road authorities (through AUSTROADS) have developed national criteria for the Accreditation of Road Safety Auditors, which include the completion of an approved training course and the obtaining of relevant experience. Although there are no national criteria for the registration of crash investigators, the contents of the crash investigation and treatment of crash locations component of this course are based on the Austroads Guide to Road Safety, Part 8: “Treatment of Crash Locations”. This course has been designed in conjunction with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads to satisfy all the requirements for an approved road safety audit and treatment of crash locations course.
