ISO 39001 - Road Traffic Safety (RTS) Management System


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 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.

ISO 39001:2012

Why RTS?

Global research has shown that death and serious injury can be considerably reduced by adopting a holistic safe system approach to RTS. This involves a clear focus on RTS results and evidence-based actions supported by the right levels of organization management. And Governments cannot achieve these reductions alone. Organizations of all types and sizes, as well as individual road users, have a role to play.

ISO 39001 outlines the requirements for an RTS management system. It provides a tool to help organizations reduce, and ultimately eliminate, the incidence and risk of death and serious injury related to road traffic accidents – resulting in more cost-effective use of the road traffic system. And by identifying RTS management best practice this new international standard enables organizations to achieve their desired RTS results.

For whom is ISO 39001:2012 applicable?

ISO 39001 is designed for public and private organizations that interact with the road traffic system. It can also be used by internal and external parties, including certification consulting firms such as Dynamic Strategies, to assess an organization’s ability to meet the requirements. ISO 39001 is expected to be particularly relevant to organizations with large numbers of vehicles. These include freight and passenger companies as well as those with large fleets of private vehicles like those used by engineers, sales people or supermarket delivery drivers.. It will also be of interest to organizations that manage road networks.

When RTS related incidents, serious accidents and deaths occur, it is the responsibility of organizations involved in road traffic systems and society as a whole to learn how to better reduce and minimize the risks.

In addition to the unacceptable human costs, there are also financial implications for those concerned with roads, vehicles, road users and emergency medical services.

An RTSMS, based upon ISO 39001 can provide your organization with an international best-practice framework for managing your responsibilities and interactions with the road traffic system.
