The Australian National Risk Assessment Model (ANRAM) provides road agencies in Australia with a nationally-consistent system for the identification; measurement and reporting of severe crash risk. ANRAM helps road agencies manage this risk through the development of treatment programs aimed at reducing fatal and serious injury (severe) crashes. Such programs support the objectives of the national and state road safety policies seeking to eliminate fatal and serious injuries. This Safe System vision informed the methods for identifying and evaluating severe crash risk.
