Project Manager, Steve Griffith recently attended the the first two days of the 27th Safe System Engineering Workshop in order to refresh his knowledge around road safety, and in particular the ‘Safe System Approach’.

“The biggest learning for me,” Steve says, “was obtaining a better understanding of what the Network Safety Assessment is all about.”

He was also pleased to see that an increased emphasis on addressing factors other than roadside infrastructure are delivering positive results over time. Safer drivers, safer speeds and safer vehicles are all essential parts of the Safe System Approach. “It was refreshing to learn that a more targeted way of investing in safety schemes can be achieved by looking at a network holistically,” he said.
