Road Safety Champion Program – Module 2 of 7 (Anatomy of a Crash – Understanding Human Factors)

July 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Florida LTAP Center is pleased to offer the Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP) 7-part webinar series. This is Part 2 of a 7-part series, entitled “Anatomy of a Crash – Understanding Human Factors”.

The RSCP is a nationally recognized certificate program designed to build a knowledgeable, safety minded workforce, responsible for operating, maintaining, and designing local roads. Road Safety Champions prioritize safety and are motivated to implement safety improvements that reduce fatalities and serious injuries on rural and local roadways. The RSCP is open to all staff from transportation, public health, and law enforcement agencies who have an interest in roadway safety but are not safety experts. Think of it as a “Roadway Safety 101” course.

This two-hour training will provide an overview of human factors principles and a framework for crash analysis. It will allow the non-expert in human factors to more effectively bring consideration of the road user’s capabilities and limitations into policies and practices. Knowing how road users interact with their vehicle, the roadway and other road users can also provide useful insights to the process of crash analysis. Armed with that knowledge, construction and maintenance personnel, planners, engineers, public health professionals and law enforcement can work together to target appropriate countermeasures to help reduce injury crashes. The goal is to equip practitioners who do not work in or deal directly with human factors to better understand them and the role they play in roadway system policy, design, and operations.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain road user role as element of a system
  • Identify road user capabilities and limitations
  • Describe how current geometric design and traffic operations practices address human factors
