Network Safety Plans

Course overview

This training course explores the benefits of developing and implementing a contemporary, effective, structured Network Safety Plan, as part of a Safe System inspired road safety effort.

Network Survey Plans are a relatively new concept within the industry and their importance, content and guidance on their development is emerging. This course identifies and embeds prior practitioner knowledge and experience, before extending knowledge and understanding.

The course begins by securing an overview of the exposure and experience of attendees before turning to answer the key questions:

  • What is a Network Safety Plan (NSP)?
  • Why are they important in saving lives on Australia’s roads?
  • Why are they important to my role/my organisation?
  • What does a standard contents list look like?


Attendees are then given practical guidance and useful tips on:

  • Collating required documentation, information and data
  • Making a start – following a process
  • Fleshing out the NSP – reaching a worthy first draft
  • Writing to express – approach, phrasing, formatting
  • Iterations of drafting/reviewing the NSP
  • Finalising and promoting the NSP
  • Ensuring a compelling and dynamic document


A practical case study underpins the course, providing attendees with the opportunity to apply their learning.
