The main objective of ISO 39001 Road and Traffic Safety Management System standards is to prevent accidents occurring on highways and to minimize the loss of life and property in these accidents. ISO 39001 standardsare the standards that public and private sector organizations responsible for this work shall establish, implement, corrective and preventive works when necessary and keep the system alive in relation to road and traffic safety.

ISO 39001 Road and Traffic Safety Management System standards were first designed by the British Standards Institution (BSI). 2012 was launched by the International Standards Organization.

In order to establish this system, it is necessary to receive certain basic trainings and consultancy service from a certification body when starting the works. In the first step of the studies, road and traffic safety risk analysis is performed. The vehicles are then reviewed for compliance with driving safety procedures and relevant legal requirements. All vehicle drivers are provided with road and traffic safety trainings. In addition, all existing business processes and implementation instructions are reviewed in the light of these standards. Employee job descriptions are updated in the same way.

At the end of all these efforts, ISO 39001 Road and Traffic Safety Management System is established. The biggest benefit of establishing this system is to prevent accidents that occur on the highways. Most of these accidents do not follow the rules and some of them are caused by mechanical failures in the vehicle. In both cases, accidents can be avoided by acting responsibly and following the standards that come with the system.

However, as with all management systems, the road and traffic safety management system does not end with the installation. It is necessary to monitor and improve this system in parallel with the company's goals, expectations and developing and differentiating conditions.
