Safe System Approach Guiding principles to the Safe System approach 1. People make mistakes.

Safe System Approach Guiding principles to the Safe System approach 1. People make mistakes. Humans will continue to make mistakes, and the transport system must accommodate these. The transport system should not result in death or serious injury as a consequence of errors on the roads. 2. Human physical frailty. There are known physical limits to the amount of force our bodies can take before we are injured. 3. A ‘forgiving’ road transport system. A Safe System ensures that the forces in collisions do not exceed the limits of human tolerance. Speeds must be managed so that humans are not exposed to impact forces beyond their physical tolerance. System designers and operators need to take into account the limits of the human body in designing and maintaining roads, vehicles and speeds. ROAD SAFETY AUDITS IN SOUTH AFRICA WORKSHOP
