ISO 39001- Road Traffic Safety (RTS) Management

What is ISO 39001?

Today, with the continuous growing population Road Safety Management is a global concern and this standard especially identifies requirements to have a proper Road Traffic Safety Management (RTS) that will enable an organization to know and have control over the road traffic system to reduce death and serious injuries caused due to road traffic crashes. ISO 39001 confirms that the organization has all the required tools to reduce/eliminate the risk of death & serious injury related to road traffic crashes.

This International Standard is applicable to public and private organizations that interact with the road traffic system. It can be used by internal and external parties, including certification bodies, to assess the organization’s ability to meet the requirements. The standard is designed to help you implement the best road safety practice in your organization, helping you to meet legal, industry, and stakeholder requirements and at the same time and also reducing your impact on communities and the environment. Experience from around the world has shown that large reductions in death and serious injury can be achieved through the adoption of a Safe System approach to RTS. By adopting this International Standard, organizations should be able to achieve

  • RTS results at levels that exceed what can be achieved through compliance with laws and standards, and
  • Their own objectives, and, at the same time, contribute to the achievement of society goals

This International Standard promotes the use of a PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, and Act) process approach that will guide the organization towards delivery of the desired Road Traffic Safety management results.  ISO 39001 is the best benchmark for road traffic safety management. Achieve certification and you can ensure you are operating responsibly, prioritize the safety of your employees and demonstrate a consideration to other road users.
