Accident-1

Overview

ARRB is pleased to offer a two day workshop based on the 2nd Edition of the
Guide to Road Safety Part 8: Treatment of Crash Locations , which was released in November 2015.

In the updated 2nd Edition guide the text has been fully revised and the format amended to provide practical, hands-on advice on how to investigate and treat crash locations. This guide is a companion document to the Austroads Guide
