SoRSA (Society of Road Safety Auditors) represents an exciting initiative for the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), in providing a home for the development of professional highways safety auditing best practice.


SoRSA was established by the Institution as a response to a growing call from professionals operating in the field of safety auditing and safety engineering practice in the UK, for a forum to exchange best practice and, importantly, to provide advice and ultimately routes to professional recognition for safety auditing practitioners.

Importantly, SoRSA is an association of the CIHT and therefore has a committee structure and constitution similar to the established regional branches. Uniquely, it is a branch of professionals from a specialist discipline.

If you are an existing CIHT Member, you can join SoRSA from wherever you live in the UK, or indeed abroad.


The SoRSA Constitution outlines the social objectives, membership, composition of committees and election processes. The Constitution was agreed on 20 June 2022.

The Constitution is available to view here: SoRSA Constitution.
