Submission Date: 2018 Conference: ARSC
Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has developed a Road Safety Management Plan (RSMP) to embed safe system principles and culture throughout the organisation. The Road Safety Management Plan is designed to put road safety at the forefront and will result in road safety-focused decision making and network level thinking. The RSMP will facilitate the implementation, within TMR, of a Safe System approach to managing road safety. Senior leadership commitment and the supportive framework provided by the National Road Safety Strategy, the Queensland Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan are necessary to its success.
