Module 6: Reading the Road

This two-hour training will teach participants how to “read the road” as well as the importance of doing so in daily activities. It will use real world examples on different roadway components to demonstrate how participants may be able to uncover potential safety issues during their routine activities.  It will also discuss how the road safety audit process can be used to “read the road” in a more formal approach. The training will also discuss the consequences daily activities of workers may have on safety.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define what is meant by “reading the road.”
  • Identify potential safety issues or identify any indications which suggest road users may have challenges traveling or navigating a roadway.
  • Identify “reading the road” step(s) in the Road Safety Audit (RSA) process.
