Drive safely for everyone’s safety!

Dietsmann is fully committed to compliance with the most stringent health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) standards and applies all its clients’ safety rules when working on site. But Dietsmann is also committed to continuous improvement.

One of the 12 Dietsmann Safe Maintenance Rules relates to driving motorized vehicles. In October 2017, Dietsmann focused extra attention on this rule by launching a Safe Driving campaign. The ‘Safe Driving’ campaign is being promoted in five languages. Information sessions focusing on the rule are being organized and run on site from mid-October 2017.
