AASHTOWare Safety powered by Numetric, Inc. 

AASHTOWare Safety is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform specifically designed to meet the unique needs of state and local transportation agencies in the area of highway traffic safety management. The AASHTOWare Safety platform begins by ingesting, cleansing, and combining data to make it more meaningful and ready for analysis. The integrated Safety Data Warehouse that the platform is built upon, houses all the necessary data and translates it into language humans naturally understand, resulting in a refreshingly easy, intuitive search experience.

As defined by the Highway Safety Manual, there are six steps in the Roadway Highway Safety Management Process: 1) Network Screening, 2) Diagnosis, 3) Countermeasure Selection, 4) Economic Appraisal, 5) Project Prioritization, and 6) Safety Effectiveness Evaluation. By facilitating the data unification and manipulation process, the AASHTOWare Safety platform provides automated insights that allow agencies to make better decisions faster, with a higher degree of confidence.

The AASHTOWare Safety platform software consists of the following three (3) product offerings:

AASHTOWare Safety Analyst

AASHTOWare Safety Analyst provides a set of software tools for use by state and local highway agencies for highway safety management. These tools can be used to develop programming for site-specific highway safety improvements following the process and procedures in the Highway Safety Manual (HSM).

AASHTOWare Safety Analyst incorporates the HSM safety management approaches into computerized analytical tools for guiding the decision-making process. Because it has a strong basis in cost-effectiveness analysis, AASHTOWare Safety Analyst can play an important role in prioritizing improvements so that highway agencies get the greatest possible safety benefit from each dollar spent in the name of safety.

AASHTOWare Safety Analyst Sunset Plan

  • AASHTO intends to sunset AASHTOWare Safety Analyst on June 30, 2022. A number of factors led to the decision to sunset. The Safety Analyst software is now 18 years old and has reached the end of its technology lifecycle. That reality and the decreasing level of adoption and use by the state departments of transportation in recent years has made on-going development or product upgrade unsustainable.
  • AASHTOWare will continue to provide support and maintenance through June 30, 2022, however no enhancements will be made to the software during the sunset period.
  • Any member agency that continues to license Safety Analyst through the sunset period, may elect to receive the source code by executing a source code agreement after June 30, 2022.
  • A new AASHTOWare Safety product is available for agencies wishing to consider an alternate solution in this business area. Please refer to the AASHTOWare Safety product description elsewhere in this catalog for more information.
  • Additional information may be obtained by contacting Ryan Fragapane, AASHTO Associate Project Manager, at (202) 624-3632 or by e-mail at rfragapane@aashto.org.
“The effectiveness of crash analysis depends on the proper analysis methods and the availability of current software tools and quality data. AASHTOWare Safety Analysis provides a set of analytical tools to identify and manage a system wide program of site-specific improvements to enhance highway safety.”
