Course outline

The aim of the workshop is for participants to prepare a work plan/strategy for the development of a road safety strategic plan for their Council.

The Guide provides practitioners with a sequence of steps as the most direct route to the development of a plan that will be accepted and integrated into the Council’, management processes. These include identifying stakeholders, using crash data effectively and the process for developing strategies. The guide includes examples of the types of issues and barriers they may encounter, which may be avoided or resolved with preparation. The emphasis is on effective and timely communications. It is recommended that participants bring a copy of their own Council’s organisational chart and any reports or information on current road crash trends in their LGA.


Significantly improve the structural integrity, safety and performance of sealed and unsealed roads.
