Road accidents belong to the most common causes of injury and death globally. It is estimated that millions of people are killed and injured on roads around the world each year. This fact leads Road traffic safety (RTS) to a global concern with incalculable human, social and economic impact and makes traffic safety increasingly important from year to year.
ISO 39001 Standard specifies minimum requirements for a Road Traffic Safety (RTS) Management System interacting with the road traffic system to improve safety and reduce incidents and the risk of serious injury or death due to road traffic accidents.
The requirements include development and implementation of an appropriate RTS policy, development of RTS objectives and action plans, which take into account legal and other requirements with a plan – do – check – act approach (Plan-Do-Check-Act, PDCA).
This International Standard is applicable to public and private organizations that interact with the road traffic system such as national and road authorities, Governments, safety groups and private companies.
The RTS management system can be compatible with or integrated into other management systems within the organization.
