Companies looking for lower repair and insurance premiums need to seriously consider working towards achieving the ISO 39001 Road Traffic Safety Management accreditation .
As well as lowering premiums, achieving ISO 39001 status demonstrates to customers that as a company you take regulations seriously.
Going through the ISO process can also identify efficiencies across your business and help the business run smoothly going forward.
ISO 39001 provides state-of-the-art requirements for safety aspects including speed, vehicle condition and driver awareness to help improve road safety management.
The requirements in the standard include development and implementation of an appropriate RTS policy. Firms are also shown how to develop their own RTS objectives and action plans, which take into account legal and other requirements to which the organisation subscribes.
Holding ISO status also helps a company to realistically go for public and private procurement tenders and contracts.
It requires a high level of commitment, which needs to be cascaded down through the organisation by senior management, and places emphasis on the demonstration of leadership and sustainable management processes.
Achieving ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is a certified stamp of approval which can be instrumental for many businesses in terms of winning and retaining contracts, and improving company brand and reputation.
Road Traffic Safety (RTS) is a global concern. It is estimated that around 1.3 million people are killed and 20 to 50 million are injured on roads around the world each year and that this level is rising.
