The Road Safety Risk Manager: a tool to help sustain lives

Local government road authorities are under increasing pressure and necessity to manage road safety related issues under their control. With the High Court decision in May 2001, it is now critical that authorities adopt a proactive approach to managing road safety risk. The ARRB Transport Research and Austroads developed Road Safety Risk Manager will provide authorities with a powerful tool to manage, prioritise and track the status of road safety issues on their networks. The focus of the software is to provide road safety professionals with a tool to proactively assess road safety hazards and treatments for the purpose of prioritising actions. With limited budgets available authorities can have greater confidence that their expenditure and road safety engineering programs will maximise risk reduction and sustain more lives. The software also provides a simple way to track the status of any issue or record any actions taken, allowing traceability and transparency in decision making, and assisting road safety managers demonstrate a responsible approach to managing road safety risk.
