Virtual Event Virtual Event

About the Presentation:

Workshop Length:  6 instruction hours divided into two 3-hour webinars

Training Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Target Audience:  Public and private-sector transportation engineers and planners involved in developing and implementing strategies and projects to improve roadway safety performance.

Workshop Description:  This virtual workshop introduces the 1st Edition of the Highway Safety Manual (HSM), a publication of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation (AASHTO).  The HSM can assist transportation professionals in making more-informed decisions in planning and project development and presents methodologies for quantifying safety performance.  This workshop begins with an overview of the HSM and focuses on an introduction to the crash prediction methods for urban and rural roadways and intersections as well as discussion on available case studies. An introduction and practical applications of HSM methods, including use of crash modification factors and safety performance functions, as well as demonstrations of available software-based solutions will also be provided.

Outcomes:  Upon completion of the workshop, participants should be able to:
•    Describe the fundamentals of roadway and intersection crash prediction methods in the HSM
•    Identify roadway and intersection attributes and conditions that impact safety performance
•    Understand the capabilities and limitations of crash prediction in data-driven safety analysis

Course Details:
•    Module 1 – Introductions and an Overview of the HSM
•    Module 2 – Human Factors and Fundamentals
•    Module 3 – Roadway Safety Management and Systemic Safety Approaches
•    Module 4 – Safety Performance of Rural Highways and Urban / Suburban Arterials
•    Module 5 – Safety Performance of Freeways and Interchanges
•    Module 6 – Crash Modification Factors
•    Module 7 – Demonstrations of HSM Software-Based Solutions (including ISATE and IHSDM)
•    Module 8 – Group Discussion and Concluding Remarks

Participants will be provided with digital versions of the workshop materials and publicly available software packages for applying the HSM methodologies.

Supported by members of the ITE Transportation Safety Council and True North Safety Group.
