Near-misses, incidents and accidents are generally analysed in detail when they occur, and action plans are put in place afterwards. Checks and audits identify gaps or non-compliances which require corrective actions.
However, the management of safety should not only be based on input perceived as being negative. It is also very important to promote good safety results and outstanding behaviour through positive means. This will encourage a positive approach towards safety by transport function personnel.
Beside the encouraged day to day acknowledgement of safe behaviour, recognition programmes are a way to positively promote transport safety.
This Transport Safety Information provides guidance on recognition programmes targeting the road safety stakeholders, either individuals, teams or organisations.
