Road Traffic Safety (RTS) Management Systems: Introduction to ISO 39001
The cost of incidents, serious accidents and deaths is a responsibility borne by those organizations involved in road traffic systems and society as a whole. The implications for those concerned with roads, vehicles, road users and emergency medical services are not only significant in human costs, which is obviously unacceptable, but there are also great financial costs for organizations involved.
A road traffic safety management system (RTSMS), based on ISO 39001, can provide your organization with an international best-practice framework for identifying and managing road safety risks.
