Safety At Ultracargo, safety is a value.

We operate following all national and international standards, and we exceed legal requirements, therefore, we are a reference in the sector. In recent years, we evolved in our safety culture entailed by robust investments in our terminals and training of our coworkers.

The Bradley™ Curve

We adopted the Bradley™ Curve system by DuPont™ to follow up on our journey in the consolidation of a safety culture. We are presently in the independent stage, heading to the interdependent stage, consolidating the safety culture.
Reactive stage Reactive stage

Reactive stage

Coworkers do not assume responsibilities and believe that “accidents happen”.
Dependent stage Dependent stage

Dependent stage

Coworkers consider safety as a matter of following rules prepared by someone. The accident rate falls, and the managing team believes that safety could be controlled “if people would follow the rules”.
Independent stage Independent stage

Independent stage

Coworkers assume responsibility by themselves and believe that they can make a difference with their own actions. This reduces accidents even further.
Interdependent stage Interdependent stage

Interdependent stage

The teams consider themselves as owners of the safety and assume responsibilities for themselves as well as for others. They do not accept low standards, talk actively with others to understand their point of view and believe that true improvement can only be reached as a group, and that absence of accidents is a viable goal.
