New Standard for Road Traffic Safety Management – ISO 39001

If your business operates a fleet of vehicles or has a workforce that is regularly using the roads as part of their job, you’ll recognise how important it is to improve road safety.

Having a good road safety records is not only essential to the reputation of a business, but it also reduces the risk of damaging criminal prosecutions and costly insurance claims.

BS ISO 39001 sets out the minimum requirements for a Road Traffic Safety Management System using a framework that will be familiar if you have been involved with other ISO standards.

Operating a Road traffic Safety Management System can help formalise your risk management processes and document evidence of your preventative actions such as:
– Driver training,
– Safe driving speeds,
– Drug and Alcohol testing.

Assent’s specialist automotive and aerospace consultancy is ready to provide assistance implementing an ISO 39001 management system through to certification.

We can also help the business reduce it’s exposure to risk and negotiate a revised insurance premium.
