Environmental audit measures are an established means of assessing neighborhood walkability and pedestrian safety, especially in urban settings. This Environmental Audit Tool allows for highlighting key dimensions of safety and walkability, including wayfinding, and isolates areas where environmental change is most needed.

The Healthy Aging Research Network (HAN) developed several resources, including these tools to assess the pedestrian environment with particular attention to the needs of older adults and people with disabilities.

The University of Washington Health Promotion Research Center (UW HPRC) was the coordinating center for HAN.
