    Introduction to Traffic Safety Culture

    Core Module #3 is an introduction to growing positive road safety culture within organizations and communities to significantly improve road safety in America. Participants will learn the basics about intentional behavior, how a variety of stakeholders across our communities influence behavior, introduce a basic definition of road safety culture which can be used to improve road safety, and how to apply the idea of safety culture to an organizational setting. Participants will leave the training with a better understanding of how to change behavior, a working definition of road safety culture, and ideas about how they can leverage their role (and the role of others) in growing a positive road safety culture.

    Introduction to Safety Analysis
    Core Module #7 will provide an introduction to safety analysis. The safety analysis process, as part of the FHWA Safety Toolkit, is a systematic process for identifying the factors that can contribute to crashes and implementing effective countermeasures.  It is a best practice method that is flexible and can be used to fit your needs. This training will cover the seven-step process and discuss how it can be applied using two different complementary analysis methods: the traditional site safety analysis and the systemic analysis. Additionally, case studies will be utilized to practice applying the process.

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. The training will also discuss the consequences daily activities of workers may have on safety.
