Road traffic safety (RTS) management systems. Requirements with guidance for use

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : November 2012



Road traffic safety (RTS) is a global concern with an estimated 1.3 million people killed and 20 to 50 million injured on roads around the world each year. With these statistics quickly increasingly, the socio-economic and health impacts are substantial.

BS ISO 39001:2012 seeks to help organizations reduce and ultimately eliminate the risk of death and serious injury related to road traffic incidents.

Be a step ahead of everyone else

This International Standard identifies elements of good RTS management practice that will enable organizations to achieve their desired RTS results. Experience from around the world has shown that large reductions in death and serious injury can be achieved through the adoption of a holistic Safe System approach to RTS.

This involves a clear and unequivocal focus on RTS results and evidence-based actions, supported by appropriate organizational management capacity. This focus can result in a more cost-effective use of the road traffic system.

Gain complete confidence

The document is applicable to both public and private organizations that interact with the road traffic system and can be used by internal and external parties, including certification bodies to assess the organization's ability to meet the requirements.

BS ISO 39001:2012 specifies the requirements to:

• Improve the performance of Road Traffic Safety

• Establish leadership commitment by adopting a long-term vision

• Determine risks and opportunities through current performance

• Understand the needs and expectations of interested parties.
