AUSTROADS UPDATE TO GUIDE FOR ROAD SAFETY AUDITS

April 2019


Did you know that Austroads has recently released a new Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Managing Road Safety Audits, providing additional, but critical guidance on the procurement, management and conduct of road safety audits (RSAs)?

Previously there was a single document ‘Part 6: Road Safety Audits’. This has now been separated into two parts ‘Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Managing Road Safety Audits.’ and ‘Guide to Road Safety Part 6A: Implementation of Road Safety Audits. The ‘Guide to Road Safety Part 6A: Implementation of Road Safety Audits’ document is essentially a re-issue of the old ‘Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Road Safety Audits’ document, however the ‘Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Managing Road Safety Audits’ is a completely new document which provides guidance on the procurement, management and conduct of road safety audits. The new document emphasises Safe System principles and integrates them as part of the Road Safety Audit process.

It is anticipated that the two documents will ultimately be consolidated back into a single document in the future.

Traffix Group currently has 6 pre-qualified Senior Road Safety Auditors and 6 Road Safety Auditors who are registered with VicRoads and are across these Austroads updates.

Traffix Group's registered Senior Road Safety Auditors include Anthony Coyle, Will De Waard, Ross Thomson, Brent Hodges, Goran Rakita and Joshua Dunstone.
