The systemic safety management approach is intended to address high frequency roadway crash types, but a traditional crash-history-based safety management approach can overlook individual locations. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern to present systemic safety management approaches in program safety improvement projects. Presenters will go over differences between the three primary safety management approaches that highway agencies use for programming safety improvements. They will discuss existing methods and tools to conduct systemic safety analyses. They will address software tools and appropriate applications for conducting systemic safety and guidance. Presenters will also cover the data needs to successfully implement and conduct systemic safety analyses as well as best practices of agencies implementing systemic safety analyses.

This webinar will feature research from NCHRP Research Report 955: Guide for Quantitative Approaches to Systemic Safety Analysis.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar. Sign into to view registration information.
