“Safe and Responsible Driving” campaign launched by EDPR
One out of every three work-related fatalities are due to traffic accidents.
EDPR wants to work together with all employees to promote road safety by launching this internal Health and Safety campaign.
EDPR’s Health and Safety Department launched an awareness-raising internal campaign that involves the distribution of several informative and visual materials focused on the key aspects of road safety. Topics include speeding, fatigue, driving with poor visibility, as well as the effects of alcohol, drugs and on-the-road distractions.
According to the World Health Organization, traffic accidents are safety problems. Every hour there are approximately 140 casualties and, over the last ten years, more than 12 million people have died (equivalent to the vanishing of twice the population of the city of Madrid). These accidents can be prevented, and EDPR wants to help by spreading information on how to stay safe.
