RSF Series: Human Factors


Webinar Description:
A significant number of traffic crashes involve some aspect of human error as a major contributing factor. This webinar provides the professionals with the basic knowledge of the factual information and insight on the limitations and capabilities of road users to facilitate improved safety performance through roadway design and operational decisions. Despite a widespread acknowledgement that traf?c safety re?ects the consideration and integration of three components—the roadway, the vehicle, and the roadway user—the information needs, limitations, and capabilities of roadway users are often neglected in traditional resources used by practitioners. With initiatives such as Safe Systems, Towards Zero Deaths, and Vision Zero, addressing human factors is critical to achieve significant reductions in the frequency and severity of traffic crashes. This webinar provides suggestions to improve roadway design and operations through consideration of the needs of the user.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Summarize basic concepts of human factors as they relate to roadway safety, design, and operations. 
  • Describe the abilities and limitations of drivers and road users. 
  • Identify linkages between drivers and road design as they relate to crashes and potential engineering countermeasures.
  • Demonstrate application of the consideration of human factors through examples.
