Through partnerships we contribute to improving road safety in the transport of oil products.
In Portugal, Galp, jointly with the Portuguese Association of Petroleum Companies (APETRO), has established and subscribed an Added Road Safety Agreement (ARSA). This agreement constitutes a reference to the ground transport conditions of oil products in Portugal, for the subscribing companies.
The ARSA sets requirements for an efficient safety management system in the transport of oil products, covering vehicles, drivers, as well as the Quality and Safety Management system itself, of transport companies.
Under this agreement, all drivers in Galp’s service attend compulsory training courses, whose contents are validated by the Organisation and cover topics such as defensive driving, product handling, among others.
Every year, through the APETRO agreement, a strict audit plan of the companies that are hired to transport our products is carried out.
