Safety and road safety represent one of the basic principles that a society should allow to its citizens. Human habits are difficult to change, and large amount of time is necessary (ten, twenty or more years) to make a generational difference in the requirements for safe transport. For example, the seat belt in the car. For one generation seat belt was for the first time seen in some mature age, the next generation use it for the fear of police fines, while later generation have opportunity to understand purpose of seat belt, not just the fear of police fines. Thus, the process of learning and understanding is very long, because apart from the education the upbringing is necessary, and to do it out of conviction, not out of fear or because everyone else does it.
Human habits can be changed thru educations, trainings or constant approach of media campaigns. International Security Institute is keen to improve road safety in our society.
ISI work with companies to set internal standards of safety approach and it is one of our aims. Especially in sensitive areas like transport of people, or goods, or in area of transport of dangerous goods, also for companies that work in the field of producing oil and gas, etc., we provide safe approach.
On the other hand adaptation of the infrastructure – roads, is an easier process. Namely, by introduction of specific standards in the planning, design and construction, and with road maintenance can be achieved that road is safe. Of course, to be realistic all of these represents the process, thus we are back to the part of the habits, in this case engineering habits that with well–planned measures (strategy) can be changed and make roads safe. We recommend implementation of masseurs like Road Safety Audit, or tools like International Road Assessment Program etc.
