DP World, UAE Region Rolls out Truck Safety Programme With RTA
DP World, UAE Region has launched a road safety awareness programme with Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) and automotive giants Mercedes-Benz and Michelin. The safety programme spread over two weeks features seminars and demonstrations by both automotive partners including technologically advanced trucks and tires and sessions on how vehicles can be made safer.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO, DP World, said: “We are committed to the safety and well-being of our employees and the wider community and by partnering with Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority and key industry players we are helping to promote it. As Expo 2020 draws closer our roads will get busier and we will see a rise in truck traffic. Drivers and their employers are a key part of our operations in Jebel Ali and beyond and we aim to ensure those who visit or work here get home safely to join their families. Engaging with those involved in the movement of containers contributes to a safer community.”
DP World, UAE Region regularly conducts road safety campaigns designed to educate truck drivers on a range of issues including traffic rules in the terminal area, speed limits, restricted access areas, pedestrian crossings, parking procedures, personal protective gear, restrictions on the use of mobile phones while driving and the use of seat belts. DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port was the first in the Middle East to be awarded the United Nations Department of Safety and Security Certificate in 2013.
We began life as a local port operator with our first project, the development of Dubai’s Port Rashid, in 1972. Seven years later we opened Jebel Ali Port, the busiest port outside of Asia and a facility that has propelled us on our journey to becoming a leading enabler of global trade.
