European Road Safety Map
AVIN signs the European Road Safety Charter – Athens, March 11, 2011.
AVIN Oil signed for the first time the European Road Safety Charter, in the context of an event that took place on Thursday, March 3, 2011, at the offices of the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure and Networks in the presence of Deputy Minister Mr. Spyrou Vougia and Mr. Argyris Peroulakis, Head of Communications for the Representation of the European Commission in Greece.
The certificate of our commitment
The European Road Safety Charter was created in January 2004, with the aim of helping its members reduce the number of road accident deaths, marking a new era of commitment for the European Union. Through the program, the members of the Charter implement innovative actions to promote Road Safety Messages, exchange ideas and practices in order to improve their effectiveness at a pan-European level, and evaluate the results and progress in relation to the original objectives. As part of its ongoing and effective efforts to reduce accidents, AVIN is implementing systematic training and awareness programs that many recipients have, as it argues that the volume and nature of the oil-related transport project are responsible for all carriers of the industry.
The AVIN Oil programs included in its commitment to the European Road Safety Charter are indicative of:
- Continuous training program on defensive and safe driving. The program is aimed at tanker drivers, and all the company’s personnel who drive during their service.
- Evaluate itineraries and select them with the least risk.
- Regular evaluations of carriers, using a number of criteria, prioritizing their performance in the field of road safety.
- Guide tracking program to determine compliance with the rules.
- Sponsorship programs to inform and raise awareness of children.
As stated by the General Manager of AVIN, Mr. Miltiadis Babilis:
Today, our company is part of the Road Safety Charter family and is committed to working even more systematically and intensively at all levels – management, employees and partners – to completely eliminate accidents. We aim for a total change of culture on security issues so that we can all apply the rules on a daily and uninterrupted basis. We believe that the Charter is an excellent network of companies and organizations for the exchange of good practices and we intend to be active towards our common goal.
