Abstract

Safe functioning of transport systems depends on the effective management of safety, which is “management by objectives”, i.e. the kind of management system. Its basic principle is: “we manage safety” by “risk management”. The need to describe this problem was the main motivation to write an article. A reminder of the central place of road transport on the “map of transport safety researches”- was second motivation to write this article.
