FMS Tech is now one of seven exclusive suppliers approved in OPAL's first round of approvals
29 April 2018, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Oman Society for Petroleum Services (OPAL) recently announced Fleet Management Systems & Technologies (FMS Tech) as one of its seven approved in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS) suppliers for Oil and Gas Transportation Safety Technology in its first round of approvals.
Oil & Gas Safety Standards and Regulations require multiple qualifications and approvals to be met before a company can supply to the Oil & Gas industry in Oman. This is due to several high-risk operations, that are potentially dangerous, if not managed and regulated properly.
OPAL has also created an advanced set of criteria for various Oil & Gas operating standards.
One of these is solely focused on Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) and Road Safety principles of companies operating in Oman.
Historically, Oil & Gas transportations in Oman lacked an organized set of approved regulations.
OPAL's new standards are now solving the fragmented standards and ensuring HSE and Road Safety standards are regulated on a national level.
FMS Tech, the major supplier of Oil & Gas Transportation Safety Technology in the Middle East, was recently shortlisted for two industry accolades offered by the annual Logistics Middle East Awards.
Both category nominations were for Supply Chain performance optimization; one in the Energy industry, and the other in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).
The IVMS technologies, also known as telematics, regulate and record road safety violations, speed limits, licensing, road safety training, and more.
This ensures all Oil & Gas transportation operators are within a safe standard of practices.
The installation of IVMS devices ensure drivers are performing safely through regular reports.
These are generated automatically sent to managers to review the results.
FMS Tech is now one of the seven OPAL-approved IVMS suppliers that was announced in its first round of approvals.
