Within the framework of the Driver Training Program of Training of Drivers AVIN fleet drivers receive training on an annual basis concerning:
- Theoretical and practical training in Defensive Driving, during which they are evaluated and classified as LOW, MEDIUM AND HIGH risk drivers. The aim of the aforementioned training program is to bring drivers to the LOW risk zone. If the evaluation shows MEDIUM or HIGH accident risk, the driver is retrained, while non-compliance with the standards set by Avin leads to his removal from the fleet. In order to convey our sensitivity to Transport Safety issues, we would like to note that the above classification of our drivers following their evaluation results from the Company’s philosophy according to which every driver, professional or otherwise, constitutes a low, medium or high risk and can by no means be characterized as "safe". For Avin, an excellent driver is a driver with a LOW accident potential.
- Special training in Anti-skid (operations to avoid vehicle skid) and in Anti-rollover (operations to avoid vehicle rollover), two specialized types of training, take place in specifically designed and controlled areas.
- Training in Fuel chemistry, safe fuel Loading, Transport and Unloading.
Additionally, prior to his integration in Avin’s fleet, every candidate driver is trained and evaluated on the basis of the above techniques and is judged regarding his ability to transport oil products.

Athens, 11th March 2011.
Avin Oil has signed the European Road Safety Charter for the first time during an event that took place on Thursday, 3 March 2011, at the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, in the presence of the Vice-minister Mr. Spyros Vougias and Mr. Argyris Peroulakis, Head of Communication for the EC Representation in Greece.
The certificate of our commitment
The European Road Safety Charter was created in January 2004. Its members aim at reducing the number of road deaths, marking a new period of commitment for the European Union. Via the program, Charter members apply innovative actions to promote Road Safety messages, exchange ideas and practices in order to improve their effectiveness at European level, and evaluate the results and progress in relation to the initial targets. Within the framework of its continuous and effective efforts for the reduction of road accidents, Avin implements regular training programs and raises awareness among numerous recipients, since it believes that the volume and nature of the transport related to the trading of oil products entail responsibilities for all sector players.
Avin Oil programs included in its commitment to the European Road Safety Charter indicatively include:
- Continuous training program on defensive and safe driving. The program is addressed to tank vehicle drivers and to all company staff that drive while on duty.
- Evaluation of itineraries and selection of the least dangerous.
- Regular evaluations of carriers, using a set of criteria, with an emphasis on their performance in the area of road safety.
- Driver monitoring program to ascertain compliance with the rules.
- Sponsorship of programs to provide information and raise awareness among children.
As noted by the Chief Executive Officer of Avin, Mr. Miltiadis Babilis:
Today, our company joins the family of the Road Safety Charter and commits to working even more systematically and intensively at all levels – administration, employees and partners – for the complete elimination of accidents. Our aim is to bring about an overall change of culture concerning road safety issues, so that all of us adhere to the rules strictly every day. We believe that the Charter represents an excellent network of companies and organization for the exchange of good practices and we intend to play an active role towards the achievement of our shared target.
