Education is a complex process which comprises tasks aimed at training or developing an individual or a group of people in line with the ideals and educational goals conventionally accepted by the given society. It is also an activity whose purpose is to enable people to live a meaningful life by shaping them and educating according to the patterns and objectives commonly pursued in the society. It consists in leading other human beings towards higher levels of development and stimulating their own activeness in achieving their full and unique potential.

Transport of passengers and goods as well as ensuring its safety is, globally speaking, a complex set of activities based on the existing, and often imperfect, transport system, where a man the most important, yet at the same time the weakest link in the system. Irrespective of the infrastructural solutions, technical means or organisational regulations applied, ensuring road traffic safety predominantly depends on the behaviour of traffic participants. It is for the foregoing reason that education, training and fostering of appropriate attitudes are fundamental to improvement of safety of passenger and cargo transport. The main objectives of the research addressed in the paper were to make traffic participants realise the related threats and educate them in the scope of activities that allow for traffic safety to be improved as well as to mould behaviour patterns connected with their application on a daily basis, including among drivers at work or dispatchers of transport companies as they plan freight transport routes in the TSL sector (Transport, shipping and logistics sector). Learning about the appropriate traffic behaviour patterns and modification of current habits allow for a significant change to be made in the sphere of passenger and cargo transport in everyday life.

As a part of the methodology description provided in the article, specific problems related to education of citizens in the field of transport safety have been discussed. From a strategic perspective, the TSL sector should take optimum solutions into consideration when safety requirements are regarded. The goal of creating safe transport awareness has been described as the outcomes of use of a system known as S-mileSys. The platform provides support to logisticians, and it has been developed under the ERA-NET programme by a international research teams composed of members from three countries: Poland, the Basque Country (Spain) and Turkey.

To recapitulate the foregoing, it may be assumed that a change in the former behaviour patterns through education of people professionally connected with the TSL sector will be attained by setting freight transport routes with a higher level of quality of roads in mind. The entire S-mileSys platform will assist carriers in planning routes and combining individual transfers into supply chains etc. Once implemented, this solution will directly contribute to increasing awareness of safe transport problems.
