We have seen an increase of freight drivers not wearing High Visibility clothing or jackets on our terminals and ships.
As Stena Line we have the Safety as the top priority for both our own employees and everyone visiting our locations and ships. As we want everyone to be very well visible we are starting a campaign to make sure all freight drivers follow the minimum high visibility standards.
In practice your freight drivers will be confronted with stricter enforcement both on the quay-side and on board. We will have posters emphasizing the need for high visibility clothing and we will instruct all our staff on the terminal and ships to make the drivers aware when they are not adhering to the minimum standard.
Starting in Hoek van Holland from the 1st of February 2020 any driver not wearing a High Visibility jacket as a minimum will get a yellow card as per below handed to them by our staff. This is a reminder just like in a sports game that this behavior is not acceptable to Stena Line.
Please inform all your drivers that they need to be wearing high visibility while checking in, on the terminal and on board. In short high visibility by all drivers from check-in to cabin.
