Road safety is a priority at PAREX. We organize awareness sessions with contractors, comply with transportation schedules agreed upon with communities, and follow road plans agreed upon with the authorities.
To encourage safe road habits and behavior by drivers responsible for vehicles transporting, PAREX and oil carriers launched safe-driving awareness campaigns in 2016.
The most important issues addressed by these campaigns were speeding, drunk-driving, fatigue, safe exiting, and distracted driving. The purpose of these activities was to mitigate accident risk and comply with road safety standards.
Due to the importance of contingency plans and their contribution to improving operations, 43 road safety awareness sessions were organized in 2016. Five hundred drivers participated, strengthening their knowledge and skills necessary to drive carefully on the roads and ensure their own safety as well as that of the environment.
