    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    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.
