New Road Safety Auditor Database

by Australian Road Research Board on August 4, 2010

VicRoads has commissioned ARRB to provide road safety auditor accreditation services in Victoria over the next three years.

Individuals who complete the approved VicRoads course, or have qualifications from other jurisdictions, will be able submit their credentials to ARRB for assessment via the website. ARRB will undertake periodic audits to ensure that auditors are meeting VicRoads requirements to maintain their level of accreditation.

ARRB is also developing a new website database of Victorian road safety auditors. The database will enable anyone to search for details of auditors and to verify their accreditation level and relevant fields of experience. Auditors will also be able to log in to update their information and recent experience.

ARRB's Regional Manager, Mr Dave Jones, said ‘The project follows from earlier ARRB work for VicRoads that identified options for improving the accessibility and standard of road safety auditing in Victoria.

The online access will increase the ease of access of the Victorian community to road safety auditing professionals, e.g. road design consultants, construction contractors, councils, government agencies, toll road operators and VicRoads.’

The project will be lead by a senior ARRB road safety professional, Mr Chris Jurewicz. Chris said ‘Within a few weeks we will be advising all road safety auditors on the VicRoads register of the new processes and seeking an update of their details.’

The new website and processes are expected to be operational by December 2010. In the meantime, VicRoads will remain the main public contact for road safety auditor enquiries (Kenn Beer at VicRoads on (03) 9854 2711).

For further information about the current project and the new accreditation processes please contact Chris Jurewicz at ARRB on (03) 9881 1612.
