Creating a Case Study to Teach Systematic Safety Analysis Using SafetyAnalyst

Teaching systematic safety analysis in class has been difficult due to the amount of data that needs to be collected. A database was created for a case study to demonstrate a systematic safety analysis in class using SafetyAnalyst. With the crash, traffic, and roadway segment data provided by the Utah Department of Transportation SafetyAnalyst was set up using highways in Utah County, Utah as an example. Approximately the top 100 segments were flagged as high safety concern. Two of these segments were selected to demonstrate in class how SafetyAnalyst's diagnosis and countermeasure selection tools could be used.
