Safety Training for Drivers

On February 10th and 11th we completed an internal security training session for the first group of our drivers.

The purpose of the training was to further enlighten on safety rules and regulations, both State regulated and within the company itself. The course covers multiple important points intended to increase safety and is the reason HRO is one of the few Norwegian companies to have recieved the “Fair Transport” branding from the NLF.

  • Maintenance of both the vehicle and trailer, in addition to the rear lift.
  • Driving and resting requirements.
  • Documentation for potential control stops while on the road.
  • HSEQ – review of our deviation and improvement app.
  • Eco-driving
  • Safety routines for potential accidents or injury
  • Chain use
  • Dangerous goods
  • Load security

The next course for the second group of drivers will be held on March 10th and 11th.

As one of the first in the country, HRO is able to mark their vehicles as an approved “Fair Transport” company.

Fair Transport is NFL’s ongoing project to forward safe and environmentally conscious transport. Safety terms of traffic safety, but also safety in the social responsibility we have for our drivers and their working conditions. Our drivers receive their rest periods, have the correct safety equipment, and are appropriately trained along with being supplemented with regular courses.

HRO has worked towards this distinction by reviewing all HSE practices, as well as making guidelines and safety manuals for all situations readily and publically available.

Transport and Logistics 2017

It’s been a tradition for HRO to attend this messa. In 2017 we participated for the third time. This is an incredibly important meeting place where we’re able to contact both colleagues and transport / logistics buyers from all across the contry. We’re often noticed by our existing clients and suppliers while at the same time coming in contact with new potential clients.

We’re also able to brush up on up and coming themes within the branch through many exciting lectures.
