The responsibility model for road transport companies being developed under the leadership
of the Finnish Transport Safety Agency (Trafi) is a voluntary participation management
and procedure model intended to improve safety and environmentally sustainable
practices in commercial transport. The present report focuses on the Excel-based interface
of the responsibility model, its instructions and specimen documents of the model; however,
the model as a whole extensively covers the major safety, quality and environmental
matters relevant for road transport. The responsibility model is a management and procedure
model that transport managers can employ to survey the current state of their enterprises,
to identify strengths and development needs, to set goals, to generate reports and to
adopt new practices.
The responsibility model for road transport companies has been under development at Trafi
for several years; the responsibility model pilot study for road transport companies was begun
in July 2013 and concluded in early 2014. After the trial study, the decision was made
to continue development of the responsibility model. The follow-up study described in the
present final report began in April 2014. The follow-up study was directly based on the
findings and recommendations of the first-stage trial study.
The present final report consists of three sections. Chapters 1 and 2 contain an introduction
to the project implementation, goals and purpose and a description of the overall functioning
and purpose of the responsibility model. Chapter 3 contain the instructions for the interface
and notes on their use. The instructions presented in chapter 3 are also given as a separate
appendix at the end of the report. The third section, chapter 4, comprises sample forms
and instruction documents together with notes on their use.
