DoT Safe System Assessment Framework Workshop.

31 March 2021

The Safe System approach involves all aspects of the road system working together to help eliminate death and serious injury.

A key objective for road managers is to ensure that when driver errors do occur, they do not result in high severity outcomes. The Safe System Assessment Framework (SSAF) is gaining momentum in industry for assessing how closely road design and operation aligns with the Safe System objectives and clarifying which elements can be modified to achieve safer outcomes.

The aim of the framework is to embed Safe System thinking and evaluation from the commencement of a road project. The course will introduce practitioners to the key elements of the Safe System Assessment Framework and will demonstrate how the framework is applied to achieve tangible outcomes. Participation in this course will contribute to the National aim of reducing deaths and injuries on Australian roads to half by 2030 and to zero by 2050.

All Safe System Assessment Framework workshop courses will be held at the ARRB national headquarters unless otherwise noted:

Date: April 13th - 14th, 2021
Time: 8.30am – 5.30pm 
Duration: 2 days
