ISO 39001: Road Safety

September 9, 2021

Fleet workers, heads of transport departments at enterprises, road construction and repair teams, road maintenance organizations, design organizations, driver schools and traffic police officers in their daily professional activities influence road safety (RTS), and measures to control their activities are outlined in the relevant regulation. The ISO 39001 standard can be used internally and externally, including certification bodies, to assess an organization’s ability to meet the requirements of the standard. The management system described in this standard directs organizations to achieve their overall goals and road safety goals in particular, and provides guidelines for planning activities through which these goals will be realized.

Merely following the rules does not guarantee against collisions and other accidents on the roads. You cannot guarantee that all other road users will follow the rules at all times. Therefore, the risk of an unforeseen situation and an accident always remains. How can you influence other road users who knowingly or not knowingly violate the rules and increase the risk of road accidents?

ISO 39001 Key Requirements

The standard proposes approaches that minimize the risks of getting into an accident, taking into account the actual situation. Such approaches may include analyzing the upcoming route, pre-trip checking the condition of the vehicle and the driver, speed limits, in some cases even more severe than the rules, taking into account the condition of the road surface on the route, taking into account the weather forecast, additional driver training and other controls that contribute to reducing the risk of road accidents.

The most effective method of safety management is the installation of technical means on vehicles: maximum speed limits, continuous tracking of the object using GPS, video recording of the traffic situation and the driver’s mode of operation, as well as the “dispatcher-driver” voice communication. Large fleets to monitor drivers in order to prevent abuse associated with the use of vehicles and fuel for personal purposes already actively use these funds.

ISO 39001 can be used by an enterprise of any profile, since it does not put forward requirements directly to the quality of products, but contains the basic principles of organizing the work process:

  • customer orientation;
  • leader leadership;
  • involvement of employees;
  • process approach;
  • systematic approach to management;
  • continual improvement;
  • fact-based decision making;
  • mutually beneficial supplier relationships.

It is these principles that are fundamental and guarantee consumers that the company carefully monitors to produce quality products or services.

Standard Implementation Goals

With the implementation of ISO 39001 Road and Traffic Safety Management System, companies will achieve their social responsibility and corporate safety goals, demonstrate to the public that they value these goals, increase their efficiency and reduce their costs through better governance. In order to reduce material and moral losses on highways, it takes into account all relevant factors such as education, inspection, road construction and emergency assistance, and contributes to the development of society through cooperation with civil society and activities to raise awareness of road safety throughout the country.

ISO 39001 focuses on the management of social safety risks from accidents that can cause material and moral damage, and encourages organizations to create, implement and develop a road safety management system, define their policies and strategies, fulfill their obligations, raise awareness through increasing social sensitivity, traffic culture, support for inspection processes, system performance, compliance with international conditions and targeted public and private organizations associated with the road traffic system.
