SI 9301 - Safety and Quality Management in Transportation


For More Information

Israeli Standard 9301 is a unique standard for development and implementation of safety and quality management for an organization’s internal land-based transportation and traffic system. The standard, that was developed on request by the Ministry of Transportation and with its participation, is an additional tier in the national activities to raise the level of safety on the roads; specifically in organizations and in general raise the level of safety on the roads.
The guidelines in this standard are applicable to any organization that manages or is responsible for operation of vehicles as a primary activity or as part of its support system, an organization that operates drivers for moving its members and for supplying its products or services to the organization’s clients (external or internal).
The safety and quality management systems in this standard include elements for traffic management that match the requirements in SI ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 with changes and additions that match the requirements of traffic regulations.
Creating and maintaining these systems and certification by The Standards Institution of Israel – will raise the level of safety and quality of service in the organization at a worthwhile cost with a minimum of traffic safety events.

Creating a safety and quality management system for land-based transportation and traffic will enable the organization to:

  • Identify and manage risks in the transportation array, collect and analyze information and define goals for improvement.
  • Comply with relevant legal requirements, regulations and standards.
  • Raise the safety level in the organization.
  • Drive processes and plans for improvement in the safety and quality in transportation array.
  • Integrate the transportation array as an inseparable part of the organization.
  • Improve the organization’s ability to anticipate and identify the influences that the safety aspects of transportation will have on the overall management of the organization.

Auditors from The Standards Institution of Israel will assist in verifying that the organization’s safety and quality in transportation management system meets the standard’s requirements, and will emphasize where improvements are necessary. Certification for SI 9301 for organizations whose primary line of business is land-based transportation and traffic will ensure that the organization also meets the requirements for ISO 9001.

The path to certification

Certification is done after implementation of an intra-organizational process, in which a safety and quality in transportation management system, per the standard requirements, is successfully implemented. In order to start the process, it is recommended to purchase the standard at the Standards Institution information center, to learn the requirements and to participate in appropriate training. Additionally, consultants that specialize in safety and quality in transportation management systems can be used, and The Standards Institution of Israel can conduct a preliminary audit to review the disparities.
The process should be seen as an opportunity for improvement by a team from the organization that will receive support and involvement of management. At the end of the process, auditors of The Standards Institution of Israel that are independent will perform the certifying audit that confirms that the organization’s safety and covality mamagement system in transportation is appropriate.
