Road Safety Audits (RSA) is a 4-week online class. Participants in this class will learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a proactive approach to reduce collisions and their severity in Tribal lands. These techniques provide an examination of a roadway by an independent, qualified audit team. The RSA is a way for an agency to improve roadway safety, reduce injuries and fatalities, and to communicate to the public how they are working toward these goals. This course includes topics such as: RSA definition and history, how to conduct a RSA, and identifying the common safety issues found with RSA’s.
