Transportation Safety Audit
A Transport safety audit (TSA) is the formal safety performance examination of an existing or future transport or intersection by an independent, multidisciplinary team. It qualitatively estimates and reports on potential transport safety issues and identifies opportunities for improvements in safety for all types of transportation users. Our team works in accordance with State and local jurisdictions of different statutes and guidelines of Central and State Governments to project development process for all types of transportation.
The aim of Samarth Safety is dedicated to removing obstacles and facilitates progress. Our transportation safety audits include the services for providing the new and modified ways of transportation for the goods and logistics industry and also give recommendations to make the necessary changes to ensure public safety and well-being. Our audit report comprises with various types of route surveys for ease of transportation and all the risk assessment audits specially tailored for conveying high-risk materials.
Transportation safety audits can be used in any phase of project development, from planning and preliminary engineering, design, and construction. Transportation safety audits can also be used on any sized project, from minor intersection and roadway retrofits to mega-projects.
The purpose of our audit is to:
- Describe the subject of transportation safety audit
- Introduce a set of formal procedures for carrying out transportation safety audits provide guidance regarding level of effort required based on the type of project
- Provide guidance on transportation safety audits team requirements.
Our transport safety audit is a formal and independent safety performance review of a road transportation project by an experienced team of safety specialists, addressing the safety of all road users.
The objectives of a transportation safety audit are to:
- minimise the frequency and severity of preventable collisions
- consider the safety of all sorts of transportation and road users, including vulnerable road users
- ensure that collision mitigation measures that may eliminate or reduce potential safety
- problems are considered fully
- minimise potentially negative safety impacts both within and outside the project
limits, i.e. to avoid introducing collisions elsewhere along the route or on the network
Our specialists recommend you the following necessary essentials:
- Maintain and document a formal set of transportation safety audit procedures
- Make sure that each road safety audit has clear terms of reference
- Ensure that staff and consultants in charge of the project are aware of their
responsibilities in a transportation safety audit
- Ensure that transportation safety audits are undertaken by competent road safety audit teams
- In undertaking road safety audits, Transportation Safety Auditors should document what information has been received by the transportation safety audit team and subsequently used as information to assist with the transportation safety audit
- Establish that, if applicable, safety issues raised at earlier stages which have not been addressed, are re-examined where and as appropriate ensure that the transportation safety audit team members are aware of their responsibilities in undertaking a transportation safety audit
- maintain a record of the full documentation for each road safety audit undertaken
