Road Safety

Road accidents are the greatest source of fatalities in Upstream Oil and Gas. Supporting customers address road safety is a priority for Bahwan Exel.

Analysis of Road Traffic Incident investigations has shown that there are 3 broad root cause categories;

  • Vehicle condition
  • Road infrastructure
  • Road user behavior – by far the largest contributor to Road Traffic Incidents
Improving Road Safety trends requires multi-level collaboration between legislation, enforcement, industry, media and the road user society.

In the absence of an effective legislative and regulatory Road Safety System, Industry must take the lead in tackling the Road Safety issues.

We work closely with our customers to address the serious road safety challenges through driver training, reducing the number of kilometers travelled through effective planning and enforcing the mandatory road safety standards and Life Saving rules that focus on improving road safety.
