Committed to the belief that no death or serious injury on roads is tolerable, we have implemented a Road Safety Management System (ROSMA).


The adoption of ROSMA will help us meet our state and national targets for road trauma reduction. It is built in line with ISO 39001 for Road Traffic Safety and drives best practice in the application of Safe System principles to projects and activities. ROSMA was launched in June 2016 and hundreds of employees have complete ROSMA operator training.


 Underpinned by robust internal policies, guidelines and tools, the process can be simplified into three key stepsSteps of ROSMA - no numbers.png

Set targets

Trauma Reduction Targets are set for each project using a tool that correlates historical crash data and projected Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) during an appropriate evaluation year.

These targets are developed to ensure Main Roads meets its commitment to state and national targets.

Understand the risk

Those responsible for projects are required to identify and understand the risk associated with the road project they are undertaking.

Deliver solutions

Once road trauma reduction targets have been established the final component is to select and deliver road treatment solutions that will achieve the best safety outcomes and, as far as possible, meet the ROSMA target.

Contractors required to undertake the ROSMA process

Where specified in contractual documents; contractors will be required to ensure that the Road Trauma Reduction Report and Reduction Target Tool are completed, maintained, updated and endorsed. The resources required to undertake this process are provided below:

It is advisable to check with the project manager and/or to see what parts of the process have been completed prior to the contract being awarded.
