The HOYER Group said it has exceeded the targets it had set itself in the reduction of serious accidents.
In the past 10 years the number of major incidents had been reduced by 54% in the non-transport area and by 30% in the transport area.
The international logistics company also received above-average ratings in an industry sector comparison, both in an SQAS (Safety & Quality Assessment System) survey and also in recertifications according to DIN EN ISO 9001.
The HOYER Group said it attached particular importance to safety and security when handling and transporting sensitive goods as one of the leading international providers of logistics solutions for challenging liquid products in the chemicals, gas, petroleum products and food industries.
Björn Schniederkötter, CEO of the HOYER Group, said: “The complexity of the logistics business, the spectrum of processes and the number of different interfaces in an international network like ours represent a special challenge. Uniform standards and systems of operation designed to maintain and continuously improve the safe and secure actions of all employees are fundamental.”
The audit of its own safety-related performance in the operating business took place according to its own stringent definitions of indicators.
Mark Binns, group operating board member at SHEQ, added: “HOYER sets itself high targets, and follows a philosophy in which even near misses result in detailed investigation, analysis and appropriate risk prevention measures.”
