Transplex Safety Web Series – Safe Road Users
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The October 2021 Safety Web Series is focused on the elements of the Safe System Approach to eliminating fatalities and serious injuries on our roadways. As we shift our thinking about traditional safety measures to an all-inclusive view of the roadway and the user, we must be proactive and view safety as a shared responsibility.
We invite you to join us every Friday in October for a series of webinars focused on the five elements of the Safe System approach: Safe Vehicles, Safe Road Users, Safe Roads, Safe Speeds, and Post-crash Care. We will hear from a dynamic group of policy and industry professionals leading the way for a comprehensive planning and design approach that creates a safe transportation system for all users.
Each webinar offers 1.5 certification maintenance credits for AICP members and 1.5 Professional Development Hours for Engineers. FDOT employees who register and initiate the webinar through learning Curve will be able to access their certificates in Learning Curve upon completion of the live webinar and confirmation of attendance. Non-FDOT employees will have an opportunity to request a certificate be sent via email after the live webinar.
Safe Road Users
The Safe System Approach to transportation safety recognizes Safe Road Users as one of the five elements to a comprehensive approach to transportation safety. This approach emphasizes the importance of designing a transportation system that considers the safety of all road users. Traditionally, educating road users and enforcing safe behaviors has been the approach taken to improve safety. However, emerging data shows us we must look beyond this traditional approach and question how transportation equity and safety intersect. Join us as we explore how equity impacts safety and what we as transportation professionals can do to ensure equitable safety for all road users.
