Occidental is committed to ensuring the vehicles it owns or operates, including tractor-trailers, railcars, light-duty trucks and passenger automobiles, are well maintained and equipped with appropriate safety features. Transportation safety issues - including the transportation of hazardous materials - are managed to prevent incidents and minimize risks. We collaborate closely with our contractors who transport our personnel, products and equipment, whether by ground, water or air, to increase transportation safety.
Occidental also partners with host governments to educate the public about vehicle safety. For example, Occidental Oman participates in the Oman Road Safety Exhibition, an annual event that raises awareness and educates schoolchildren. Occidental distributes colorful booklets, puzzles, table calendars and playing cards illustrating principles of road safety for drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
