Sustainable safety performance is the key to business success in a changing business environment. In order to address a lack of well-defined safety standards, especially in the crude business, Shell Trading (STUSCO) launched its Road Transport (RT) Safety program to drive a culture change in the hauler's organization and set minimum Road Transport HSSE standards as part of our working partnership.

The primary key to success is to address driver behavioral elements and organizational culture to emphasize that safety is not just a slogan, but a core value that is delivered from the top down. The CEO and Director levels of our hauler's organization must own the safety program and demonstrate visible and tangible HSSE leadership to drive the change in safety culture and HSSE performance. Individual road transport KPIs are developed and agreed upon with haulers to ensure performance is monitored and kept on track.

Shell Trading's RT HSSE program sets minimum standards for equipment and driver training that are above industry standards or Federal US DOT requirements. These include items like a robust In-Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS), roll stability control, defensive driver and fatigue awareness training. Compliance with our standards are checked via a system of hauler audits and field assurance by Shell staff and a selected group of contractors.

This webinar is categorized under the Health, Safety, and Environment discipline.
