Safety driving trainings in MOL Slovenija

Safety driving trainings in MOL Slovenija

MOL Slovenija has a number of programs for promotion of health and safety at work. One of them is as well Safety driving training, where participants spend a day at the testing polygon which enables them to experience different dangerous road circumstances. Under careful eye of instructors, employees acknowledge what can cause an accident and how to avoid it. This is extremely important for all employees who are daily on the road or who are taking lots of business trips. Refresh knowledge aims to provide attention due to the fact that over some time, driving became a routine which could bring us to thinking that “this could not happen to me”. Live experience at polygon proves us that no one is a perfect driver and everyone could involve in accident quickly, f.e. it could takes only a second of our reduced attention. Thus the main goal of safety driving program beside efforts for safety of employees,  is as well to remind us that we need to pay special attention from the moment we sit in a car.
