Road Safety Audits (RSA): Road Safety Audit is a critical piece of work involved in any temporary or permanent traffic management setup or a road/access design. A road safety audit looks at a design or a worksite from an independent point of view to analyse and identify road safety related issues.
A road safety auditor then recommends solutions to mitigate safety issues. Designers/Project Managers are not obligated to mitigate the highlighted safety risks, but are encouraged to do so. Often road authorities will want the project to address safety related issues identified through the road safety audit. Therefore, it is important to organise a road safety audit and to discuss achievable outcomes with the auditors.
