New Road Safety ISO to help businesses

4 October 2012

 RoadSafe welcomes the publication of ISO 39001 2012, which will be invaluable in helping businesses both large and small, as well as public organisations to reduce crashes involving those who drive for work.

ISO 39001:2012 specifies requirements for a road traffic safety (RTS) management system to enable an organization that interacts with the road traffic system to reduce death and serious injuries related to road traffic crashes which it can influence.

The requirements in ISO 39001:2012 include the development and implementation of an appropriate RTS policy, development of RTS objectives and action plans, which take into account legal and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about elements and criteria related to RTS that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.

RoadSafe was represented on the British committee which helped to draft the ISO and is also actively involved in the work of the UN Road Safety Collaboration which is promoting the adoption of the new standard across the world as part of the Decade of Action for Road Safety
