Have you been tasked with a safety-related assignment and didn't know where to start? Maybe you're a junior engineer responsible for conducting traffic impact assessments, and your boss asks you to assess the safety performance of an intersection while you are completing the TIA. Maybe you are a county engineer and you receive a request from the state DOT for a list of your priority locations for safety improvement. Maybe you are a city transportation manager and the city council has asked you to provide recommendations to enhance current safety management capabilities.

The FHWA Roadway Safety Data and Analysis Toolbox is a great place to start. 

The last two decades have brought significant advancements in data-driven decision-making, including the development and refinement of numerous safety data and analysis tools. For many, this transition to data-driven decision-making represents a change in how they do business. While the new safety data and analysis tools support data-driven decision-making, the identification and selection of an appropriate tool can be a daunting task, particularly for those new to quantitative safety analysis. 

The Toolbox fulfills the need for a centralized source of information about the available safety data and analysis tools. The web-based interface helps users to identify appropriate tools based on self-identified needs, capabilities, and resources. Users include anyone in search of a safety data or analysis tool to support data-driven decision-making. 

A Primer serves as a support document for users of the Toolbox. The Primer will help all users, and particularly novice users, to better understand the overall scope and functionality of the Toolbox as well as the roles, responsibilities, and tasks supported by tools in the Toolbox. The Primer guides users through a stepwise process to identify an appropriate tool to support a given task based on their needs and capabilities.

Target Audience

Anyone in search of a safety data or analysis tool to support data-driven decision-making. Specific examples include those in search of tools to manage, analyze, collect, and research safety data to support decisions in the safety management process, project development process, systems planning process, or other similar activities.
