Description:

This project is in response to a proposal that the compilation and summary of information useful to the development of a rural road safety recognition program for local maintenance personnel would be of value to local agency professional development entities (e.g., Local and Tribal Technical Assistance Programs [LTAPs and TTAPs], local road agencies, and state Departments of Transportation [DOTs]). This information might include the identification of roadway safety learning objectives and subject areas that could be included within a curriculum of instruction, courses that are currently available, and a process of recognition for local maintenance personnel who complete this curriculum.

The implementation of this type of program for local agency maintenance personnel should encourage a greater safety culture and hopefully help lead to severe injury and fatal vehicle crash reductions along rural roadways within the US.

This report provides a summary of information for those considering the implementation of roadway safety curriculum and/or recognition programs for local agency maintenance personnel.
