It goes without saying that we pay great attention to safety, especially when it comes to transporting dangerous goods. Simeon takes into account all requirements set by authorities in all its activities. Customers’ safety standards automatically become also Simeon’s safety standards.
You can trust that compliance with safety guidelines is our priority.
Transporting ADR substances includes special routines and safety instructions. At Simeon we train drivers to recognize potential risks and their effects beforehand. Our modern fleet of vehicles together with high-quality tools and equipment have an important role in minimizing risks. Yet one must remember that safety comes from operating responsibly. Safety thinking is built on responsible operation, after which the employee follows behavior-based safety standards. Simeon holds an ISO 45001 certificate, an international standard for occupational health and safety in work places.
GPS technology allows us to track our vehicles in real time. This enables us to monitor and follow up even the driving behaviour, for example to detect sudden braking or excessive speeding. It is extremely important that drivers are alert and aware of surroundings while behind the wheel. That is why we use shift schedules, and we monitor that both these schedules and the rules regarding driving and rest times are adhered to.
Safe handling of products requires expertise and knowledge. Continuous training is therefore one of the most important measures to increase safety. In addition to the statutory professional qualification and ADR courses, we also cooperate with our client companies by organizing mutual trainings.
