This two-day workshop in Portland provides basic training for the use of AASHTO's new Highway Safety Manual (HSM). Attendees will become familiar with the specific structure and content of the HSM, understand how and when to apply methods included in the HSM, and experience hands-on examples of many of the analytical procedures contained within the manual.
Attendees will have an opportunity to work some “hands on” sample problems in the computer lab. If convenient, participants should bring a calculator for simple calculations.
