Road Safety Champion Program – Module 6 of 7 (Reading the Roadway)

August 22 @ 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 6 of a 7-part series, entitled “Reading the Roadway”.

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 teach participants how to “read the road” as well as the importance of doing so in daily activities. 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. It will also discuss how the road safety audit process can be used to “read the road” in a more formal approach. The training will also discuss the consequences daily activities of workers may have on safety. The goal of this module is for participants to be able to “read the road” as well as understand the importance of doing so in daily activities.

Learning Objectives

  • Define what is meant by “reading the road”
  • Identify potential safety issues or identify any indications which suggest road users may have problems traveling or navigating a roadway
  • Identify “reading the road” step(s) in the Road Safety Audit (RSA) process
