The evolution of roadside safety standards – How they’ve evolved and influenced end terminals in Western Canada

07 Dec. 2023


Discover how MASH-rated roadside safety devices are transforming our roadways into safer spaces for motorists. This presentation will focus on the standards outlined in the 2016 Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

We will dive deep into the diverse world of roadside safety standards in Western Canada and unravel the intricacies of the MASH standard. We will shine a spotlight on end terminals, emphasizing the influence crash testing and crash evaluation criteria has had on their applications on our roadways.

By understanding the importance of employing safety hardware like end terminals, we can learn how to enhance road safety and minimize damage to infrastructure, vehicles and, most importantly, road users. Join us on 7 December as we explore the pivotal role MASH-rated roadside safety devices play in making our road network safer.
