We take full responsibility for preserving the quality of its clients’ products. Each is handled according to the highest standards. Gervas ensures compliance with all the requirements regarding the safe handling of products.
The company ensures that the quality of all products under its responsibility is preserved. The same awareness and responsibility applies to its environmental management, which has led to improved operational methods and the more efficient use of resources.
To avoid any risk of accidents, Gervas has introduced a culture where involvement and awareness lead to intrinsically safe ways of working.
As a fairly new state-of-the-art terminal and in view of the products we store and handle at our location, we operate within the strictest safety category and comply with the latest standards. As a zero-emission site, vapour treatment for all products is obligatory as well as various other safety and environmental requirements.
To maintain a safe and healthy work environment, we continuously identify and evaluate all potential risks. This is of special importance for chemical and gas terminals, for facilities that change their products often, or when customer demands lead to a terminal expansion. Wherever needed, we develop countermeasures based on the principles of prevention. Another important tool to minimize risks is our internal incident reporting system.
Our system of regular internal and external health-and-safety audits monitor compliance and benchmark our standards. We hire highly experienced consultants for risk assessments at high-risk operations, such as liquid gas handling and storage. If needed, we quickly invest manpower, time and money for corrective actions and improvements. Our goal, always, is to stay a step ahead of what's needed.
