Let's make the roads safer together!
ACT - a daily commitment
Samat’s strategic CSR plan, in which employee can get involved and become an ambassador for our values.
The human is crucial
The prevention and reduction of occupational hazards, the integration and training of our teams and the significant resources deployed for recruitment are an integral part of the Samat culture. We are now focusing our progress on the quality of life at work to improve the organisation and working conditions of our teams.
Our planet is essential
Reducing the environmental impact of our activities is a constant concern for the Group (”green” technologies, good economic driving practices, optimised loads, etc.).
The company is an actor
We are committed to responding ethically and transparently to our stakeholders on a daily basis.
Quality, Health, Safety, Security, Environment : a committed approach!
Our status as a sensitive product transport specialist commits us : every initiative we take, every decision we make is for the purpose of guaranteeing the safety of our employees and the satisfaction of our customers, while protecting our environment.
We have chosen to implement a strong QHSSE organisation, focussed on prevention and the detection of risk generating behaviour. Our QHSSE coordinators and safety monitors are present in the field in all our subsidiaries.
Sustainable development : an environmental policy on each site
The challenges of sustainable development are at the centre of our concerns. We make sure we improve our energy performance by using the most technological, low consumption and emission tractors, or by using tractors with LNG engines. We use vehicles that comply with the Euro 6 standard and develop multimode transport as much as possible, we prevent all types of pollution linked to our activity and try to control our atmospheric emissions the best we can in order to limit global warming.

Specific training for each employee
Samat group trades require increased responsibility in terms of safety and a strong commitment to training and professional insertion.
Our overall professional risk prevention policy includes employee awareness raising and training actions.
All new arrivals are given mandatory initial training including modules covering safety.
This system is completed by specific trainings depending on the activity, with regular advanced sessions.
I am there from the hire of each new driver, (then) I support them for their induction and training throughout their careers at Samat. I also facilitate the customer interface and emergency situations
Permanent safety awareness raising
There are specific QHSSE teams in all our agencies to remind employees of the correct professional gestures in an accident prevention approach. Audits, BBS accompaniments and spot checks on loading, on the road or during deliveries are implemented to detect incorrect practices and risk-generating behaviour and correct them.
Our communication campaigns
The dangers of alcohol
The dangers of drugs
Good driving practices
High-tech equipment for increased safety and comfort
All our vehicles are fitted with the latest safety equipment. Our fleet is regularly renewed to guarantee reliable trucks compliant with the strictest European standards in terms of CO2 emissions.
We have chosen to fit our vehicles with Vehco technology, an embedded computer solution that gives our vehicles better traceability in order to optimise our deliveries. Drivers can also use it to monitor their driving data (consumption, speed, braking, deceleration, etc.) and if necessary improve their driving.
An emergency organisation in Europe
There is an emergency phone number on every vehicle. A team, that can be mobilised 24/7 every day of the year involving site management and trade specialists, is capable of acting very quickly using adapted resources in the event of trouble.
Let’s travel together for a while!
