A Systematic Approach to Safety – Using Risk to Drive Action

External link: http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/systemic/


This online tool is designed to help agencies minimize risk on roadways. The tool provides a list of potential risk factors, as well a step-by-step system to implement safety planning. The focus is primarily on systemic improvements, rather than focusing on risks at specific locations, although the tool does consider the necessary balance between sport-improvements and improvements that are system-wide. Case studies provided include: Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, and Thurston County, WA.
