The Lead States Initiative for Implementing the HSM (NCHRP 17-50) is developing a HSM User Guide, which will be available in the near future, to show practical approaches to HSM implementation. Following are brief descriptions of what they accomplished.
The HSM Implementation Guide for Managers – Outlines what the HSM is (and is not), how it relates to other core technical documents and policies, and the potential benefits of its use particularly improvements in the safety performance of the highway system.
Integrating the HSM into the Project Development Process – This guide provides practitioners with examples and ideas for integrating safety performance measures into the project development process, including planning, alternatives development and analysis, design, operations, and maintenance.
If you are using the HSM and would like the information to be posted on the HSM web site, send your information to Kelly Hardy at AASHTO,
