Road Safety Audits offer a proactive approach to road safety, forming an integral part of the safe system approach at all stages of the road construction and maintenance process. IPWEAQ is offering a two-day workshop that has been developed to provide attendees with the knowledge and skills required when conduction or responding to a Road Safety Audit. This program will work through the Austroads Guide to Road Safety Part 6: Road Safety Audit, utilising case studies and practical exercises including day and night time inspections that will provide practitioners and decisionmakers with ways to formally address road safety issues before accidents occur.

The content of this three-level course is based on the Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control (IECA, 2008) and has been designed to provide practical

instruction on how to implement control measures in an effective and compliant manner.

The Lower Order Road Design Guidelines (LORDG) was developed to assist practitioners with a risk-based approach for the design and construction of lower order assets held by local government in Queensland. As the lower order road network accounts for over 70% local and state controlled networks throughout Queensland, this approach allows stakeholders to maximise the return on funds invested.

To assist with the implementation of these guidelines, a training program has been developed that provides key stakeholders with the relevant knowledge and skills to apply the strategies embedded in the document in a practical and consistent way.

Many people don’t make a conscious decision to become a leader. As they gain experience and expertise within their chosen discipline, their skills are demonstrated and recognised. They find themselves in a position of leadership.

Succeeding in a leadership role can be a challenge, requiring new perspectives, another area of knowledge, different skillsets and personality traits. Success will often require making decisions, not based on logic and analysis but utilising the ‘soft skills’ of listening, understanding personal relationships, human interaction and empathy.

The Leadership Toolkit will assist individuals, teams and organisations realise their potential and assist in the transition from skilled worker to successful leader.

Engineers and professionals working in local government perform a vital role in the delivery of services to their communities. These roles are quite different to private sector counterparts given the complex and ever changing regulatory environment of local government. Decisions are subjected to a high level of scrutiny with those responsible held to a very high standard by their communities.

The role of a Supervisor in the civil or public works sectors requires a broad range of knowledge and skills. Not only does the supervisor need specific technical skills, they must also be skilled at planning, scheduling, estimation, logistics and project management. They must also be able to communicate, lead and develop people, maintain harmony and efficiency, while maintaining safety on the worksite.

This workshop series focuses on the development of management, supervisory and technical skills required to supervise construction projects effectively.

Bridges and other structures are crucial asset elements of the infrastructure network. It is essential that their condition is monitored and repairs are planned and completed in an efficient and timely manner. The systematic inspection, condition rating and monitoring of these assets are vital components to managing the lifecycle of these structures.


A Level 1 routine maintenance inspection is required to check the general serviceability of the structure, particularly for the safety of road users, and identify any emerging problems. A Level 2 condition rating inspection is a key step in assessing the effectiveness of past maintenance treatments and identifying current maintenance needs to assist in the forecasting future changes in condition and estimating future budget requirements of structures across the network.
