Truck Drivers Safety Campaign launched at Khalifa Port

A Truck Drivers Safety campaign titled “Be Aware & Drive with Care” was held at Khalifa Port between 24 and 26 April to convey  safe driving tips to people who regularly drive inside the port premises and to ensure the safety of staff, customers and visitors.

The campaign, organized by Abu Dhabi Ports and in partnership with Abu Dhabi Terminals, Borouge and Grand Mills, had the involvement and support of Abu Dhabi Police, Emirates Traffic Safety Society, Emirates Driving Company, National Security Institute, the Department of Transport (DOT), Medeor Hospital, Life Line Hospital (LLH) and DULSCO.

“With more than a thousand trucks and cars entering Khalifa Port Container Terminal on a daily basis, Abu Dhabi Terminals has a strong commitment to keeping the roads safe and foster a safe driving culture.  We place the highest priority on the health and safety of our workforce and the people that use the port, and we are proud to join forces with our strategic partners to raise awareness about this important issue and maintain our excellent safety record,” said Martijn van de Linde, CEO, Abu Dhabi Terminals.

A variety of safety messages and gifts greeted all drivers entering the ports during the campaign. The drivers had  the chance to attend free-health screenings offered by Medeor Hospital and LLH Hospital, and to experience the state-of-the-art driving simulators of Emirates Driving Company (EDC). Abu Dhabi Police and EDC organised presentations on safe driving in English, Urdu, Pashtu and Arabic.

Free-safety inspections for trucks were offered by EDC and Abu Dhabi Ports’ Fire Rescue Services at Khalifa Port. National Security Institute’s (NSI) Community Safety Simulation Training Trailer offered guidance on safety and emergency preparedness during the campaign. Borouge and Abu Dhabi Terminals gave tips on forklift safety.
