We have a vision of an Aotearoa where everyone can get where they’re going safely whether they’re walking, cycling, driving, motorcycling or using public transport. To do this we need to build capability in the transport sector, improve sector understanding of road safety best-practice, and learn how to influence change and gain support for road safety interventions that will ultimately save lives.

The way we think about road safety has, and will, continue to evolve as we learn from the experience of others, try new things, and share our stories and successes with others. As a sector we need to commit to continuous learning and adapting as the evidence about what works grows and new Safe System technologies are developed and implemented.

Here you’ll find learning tools and resources that you can use and share with your colleagues. You’ll also be able to see what development opportunities are available. 

Our Road to Zero newsletter will keep you up-to-date with upcoming learning opportunities and other activities under Road to Zero.

Resources to help you communicate our road safety approach

Vision Zero foundations course

The Vision Zero foundations course is aimed at up-skilling the sector on the foundations of Vision Zero and the Safe System approach. This learning is aimed at both those new to working in road safety and those with more experience who need a refresher. The focus of this learning experience is on the thinking behind Vision Zero and the connection to the Safe System approach and Road to Zero, New Zealand’s road safety strategy. Regional blended learning experiences will be offered in 2023, with a mix of online and face-to-face learning.

Safe System assessment virtual course

Safe System assessments are the best-practice method to make sure roads and streets are safe because they check that Safe System principles are embedded in road infrastructure projects. This course provides participants with the key skills and tools to undertake a Safe System assessment. We’ve partnered with Safe System Solutions to run virtual training sessions that allow to you join from anywhere.

Waka Kotahi staff can register at no cost as your registration is covered under the Vision Zero learning programme and will automatically be charged back to Waka Kotahi. For other organisations Waka Kotahi will contribute the majority of training costs but there is small cost to you of $95 AUD.
