Keep people safe

The health and safety of your employees should be a top priority, whatever their work activity.  And we know that a safe and healthy work environment and legal compliance does not come about by chance. That is why BSI is perfectly positioned to work with your organization to help you keep your people safe.

Every year millions of working days are lost due to work-related illness or workplace injuries.  And on-the-road work activities pose significant risk to organizations with the peril of dying in a road accident while driving for business significantly greater than for all other workplace accidents*.

UK research has shown that a third of all road accidents involve somebody who is at work* and the UK Department for Transport research has found that roughly 1 in 3 of the 3 million company cars on the road in the UK will be involved in an accident each year**.


Managing your health and safety risk

To effectively manage your occupational health and safety risks, whether in the office, out on the road or on site, it’s important that you have a robust system in place. One that allows you to identify all potential health and safety hazards, and assess and manage the risks by putting appropriate measures in place. And that is where an BS OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety and ISO 39001 Road Traffic Safety compliant management system can help.


With OHSAS 18001 you can implement a health and safety framework, which will help your organization identify and assess health and safety risks and put formal procedures in place to manage them. The standard is designed to help you create the best possible working conditions in your organization – helping you to protect your staff and meet legal, industry and customer requirements.

ISO 39001 sets out the requirements for road traffic safety management best practice, which can be easily integrated into your health and safety management system. This can help you get the focus you need to effectively address the road-related safety risks facing your organization.  Manage the safety and welfare of employees and the general public by adopting this best-practice management system.



Working together for maximum impact

OHSAS 18001 is ideal for setting up a comprehensive health and safety management system. While it allows you to consider threats associated with on-the-road work activities, it doesn’t address them with the rigour of ISO 39001. ISO 39001 will give you the focus you need to not only effectively manage the on-the-road risks to the health and safety of your employees at work, but also to ensure that others are not put at risk by your road-related activities.  Through the implementation of ISO 39001 you can actively contribute to reducing the risk of death and serious injury from road traffic accidents, helping you save lives and support your social responsibility programme.

BSI can help you to embed a holistic ‘Safe System’ approach to managing road traffic risks that can bring together existing road traffic safety initiatives.

As well as saving you money through a reduction in accidents and the potential for reduced insurance premiums, by implementing an integrated health and safety (OHSAS 18001) and road traffic safety (ISO 39001) management system can also benefit from discounts of up to 20% on the combined assessment days with BSI.
