Risk Assessment

Risk assessments apply similar principles and methodologies as Road Safety Audits to assessing transport and traffic environments, identify issues, quantify risks and consider treatments and  solutions. 

As with Road Safety Audits, RSA performs risk assessments in any setting involving vehicles  and persons, including on and off-road environments such as carparks, freight centres, airports  and ports. 

Risk assessments consider all network users including motorists, motorcyclists, public transport  users, pedestrians, cyclists, heavy transport users and disabled users. 

Risk assessments are often undertaken when there is history of ‘near misses’ or crashes. These  assessments comprised a structured approach to identifying underlying issues affecting the  safety of a traffic environment.
