The transport of dangerous goods (TDG) on the roads of the European Union Member States is subject to a maximum of precautionary measures and constant attention. The risk of accidents is, however, very real, and needs to be managed. Differences in behaviour in relation to established security and prevention instructions may have serious consequences, particularly when it comes to the road transport of petroleum products.
In response to this situation, the European Road Safety Charter invites all those partners involved in the transport of dangerous goods to come and discuss their good practices in the field of safety management. As a Charter signatory, ExxonMobil is kindly hosting the meeting in its premises.
This initiative forms part of the new cycle of intensive short seminars launched by the European Road Safety Charter in order to enable its members to compare and share their good practices on specific and targeted actions.
The scope of the Charter club now makes it possible to bring signatories together in a targeted manner to discuss specific road safety issues and know-how. The exchanges at these working meetings will contribute to the natural development of specialised learning and competence networks. These poles of expertise will make it possible to strengthen the effectiveness of the actions carried out within the European Road Safety Charter community.
