D. LGS. (legislative decree) n. 231/2001 of the Italian legislation

The Model of Organization is currently being upgraded, in compliance with the new Consolidated Act provisions in matters of Safety. So is the development and integration of procedures, in compliance with DLgs n. 231/01. The ISO 9001 and 14001 standards are the most appropriate context to be able to comply with the decree’s provisions for a “crime prevention system” while implementing the Model of Organization.

Moreover, the Safety Certification, as per the OHSAS 18001:2007 provisions, allows compliance to the Safety Consolidated Act regulations (art. 30), referring back to D.Lgs. n. 231 of the Italian Law.


Investment in the selection and training of human resources, given the kind of service Trieste Trasporti provides, is crucial: it is through people that quality is established, first and foremost, only later to be reinforced by legislation and in-house regulations.

Among the training activities provided by Trieste Trasporti, the staff basic training and continuing education about the provisions of Legislative Decree n. 81/08 are crucial, not only to raise awareness among workers, but also to keep up with the continuous adjustments to legislation.

After assessments are carried out on the basis of the indicators from registration and monitoring data of past cycles of training, the results are evaluated in view of future planning of more specific staff training, within the company’s policy of providing ad-hoc training according to changing requirements.


The Service Charter for the current year is drafted both in Italian and Slovenian, and is made available as a supplement with the two major local newspapers, as well as in a number of city counters and schools.

The Charter is a vital ingredient of the Integrated Management System (IMS), as it guarantees the public is correctly and clearly informed about the company’s most important environmental and Health and Safety issues.

This year’s objectives are consistent both with the IMS indicators and the provisions of the Service Contract, so that a balance is reached between the company’s commitment to quality and its further development.

  • identify implicit and explicit client’s expectations of public transport service quality;
  • identify existing quality levels and the areas of potential improvement;
  • define objectives in compliance of UNI EN 13816 provisions;
  • assess the client’s perception of the service quality;
  • develop and implement action plans to reduce imbalance between supplied/perceived quality and expected/perceived quality.

Trieste Trasporti intends to continue the ongoing dialogue with its clients and the passengers’ associations in order to assess their perception and levels of expectation about the service provided by the company.

These data, together with those extracted from the Customer and Mystery Client survey, will allow the company’s management to more precisely assess the customers’ perceptions.


The Management of Trieste Trasporti intends to raise awareness about its policy and engage the staff in quality assurance, environmental and safety issues, so that they in turn may spread the information about the Company Policy and help other staff at all levels of the organization to understand it.
