Highway Safety Manual Training

Missouri has been one of the 12 lead states in improving transportation safety analysis nationwide and promoting the use of the national Highway Safety Manual (HSM). The research team previously completed multiple research projects with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) to develop calibration factors specific to Missouri. The goal of this project is to produce a training framework so that HSM training can be provided to a wide range of users on a regular basis. This framework involves two main components: 1) practitioner-friendly material that is relevant to Missouri and 2) a system to train trainers. This project seeks to produce training materials that can used with a wide variety of delivery methods such as in person workshops, remotely delivered workshops, and online modules. Missouri examples will be used in all training modules. The data will be obtained from MoDOT Transportation Management Systems (TMS), MoDOT districts, and aerial photographs.
