•Bring safety at same level as other parameters •Integrate safety into transportation decision-making processes –Quantify effect of decisions on future crash frequency and severity –Increase our accountability, measure performance, and meet legislatively mandated priorities •Fill the gap between state of art and state of practice. This is the best way for the supervisor to ensure that the driver is following the proper vehicle inspection and defensive driving procedures. 5. Performance Review Driver performance reviews should be held in private and away from the operation area. The review is considered the driver's time and interruptions should not be allowed. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has developed a procedure for identifying highway locations that have the highest potential for crash reduction (ITT Corporation, ). A critical component of this method is the use of safety. • Review QC documentation to assure adequacy. C.
