The fiscally constrained environment that state DOTs operate in today requires revisiting assumptions about safety performance benefits as well as processes and decisions that drive meeting full safety standards. The Highway Safety Manual (HSM) provides tools to allow agencies to change their design for safety of a facility from traditional “design standards” of the AASHTO Green Book, Roadside Guide, MUTCD, and state design manual to a more performance-based statistical approach. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 from 12:30-2:00 PM Eastern that will the explore processes, job aids, tools, workforce training, and the manner in which states have institutionalized the HSM as part of performance-based processes and asset management in planning, design, and operations.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committee on Safety Performance and Analysis.

Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information.
