Permanent Design/ Existing Conditions
  • Fixed hazard risk assessments
  • Road readability CAMs and chevrons
  • Safety barriers
  • Principles and system design (regardless of product):
    • Non-standard safety barrier design / brownfield;
    • Risk and reward;
    • Common Issues with Permanent Safety Barrier Design / Application;
    • Multiple frangible devices ≠ a frangible / functioning / forgiving system’
Apply first principles to practice:
  • Modifications and risk: A selection of common compromises
    / mistakes from planning, system design, administrative controls,
    adjustments, and improvisations.
  • Techniques for achieving length of need, no-go zones, sight
    distance, and avoiding front and side impacts.
  • Various construction-related issues with guard rail / concrete
