Training Topics

Road Safety Barriers Training

This course provides attendees with an understanding of the fundamentals of road safety barriers, including the types of road safety barriers, identification of hazards, the appropriate use of
barriers and the testing standards. This foundation is then used to build knowledge of the life cycle of road safety barriers, from design through to installation, inspection and maintenance,
culminating in a practical on-site road safety barrier design exercise. This course is applicable for both permanent and temporary barriers.

Participant feedback:

‘Content struck the perfect balance- it was an introduction to barrier design and considerations but then expanded on that to cover off on the ‘engineering’. Many courses can be too basic for practising engineers, but this is not one of them.’
-August 2023
