Skid Resistance Management Webinar Series - Preventing skidding related crashes at a network level

by Australian Road Research Board on September 9, 2018

During this six-part webinar series participants will gain an understanding of the underlying principles and objectives of skid resistance management.

Topics discussed include:

  • How skid resistance is measured
  • The rationale behind an equalisation of risk approach and the use of local Investigatory Levels
  • How sound network maintenance strategies and techniques can help in the management of skid resistance
  • Options available in the mitigation/treatment of ‘low’ skid resistance

This online series will be presented by Paul Hillier, Principal Technology Leader, Transport Safety at ARRB. Over the last 10 years he has led or worked on a number of skid related projects for Austroads and various state road agencies.
