Sitrans Logistique has set up safety arrangements that are of benefit to all its teams and customers.
All the teams at Sitrans Logistique are aware of safety issues and receive regular training in good safety practices so that accidents in the workplace can be kept to a minimum.
> One trainer at Sitrans Logistique provides compulsory continuous training for drivers on safety issues. He accompanies the drivers in identifying problems, such as minor bumps. He uses the digital data from the tachographs and reminds drivers of the regulations on driving hours, rest periods, waiting times, etc. He intervenes whenever he notes careless behaviour in terms of safety. He also provides in-house training for people who prepare orders or work with dangerous materials.
> One security, environment and quality technician at Sitrans Logistique looks after all the company’s sites. If an incident occurs, he opens an investigation file, talks to witnesses, asks questions, assesses the situation, and circumscribes the event. He is also responsible for setting up a collective or individual prevention plan in terms of quality, the environment and safety, identifying the shortcomings of equipment in use, ensuring that maintenance is carried out on machinery, identifying inappropriate tools, etc. His objective is to carry out both preventive and pro-active actions.
> A guide to good safety practices is coordinated by the safety technician and the continuous training provider, who covers the section on driving. This single risk assessment document (‘DUER’) is compulsory; it is updated annually in order to reduce the level of risk. Each driver is made aware of the DUER. This may indeed constitute a strategic economic aspect for the company.
Thanks to the risk management strategy it has adopted, Sitrans Logistique guarantees its customers a safety plan that limits risks in terms of the transfer of responsibilities. Sitrans Logistique would like to emphasise this aspect, which it considers important for both its customers and the company. It is important to clearly define the responsibilities of each party, particularly with regard to insurance.
