Road safety: preventing children with an interactive program
Total believes that providing better energy to car owners is our professional commitment, but fostering a safer road culture is embedded as our social responsibility. For most years starting in 2001, the annual death toll from traffic accidents in China hovered around 100,000. Even though the death toll has decreased year by year, it is still generally 10 times more than that in the developed nations.
Total China Raod Safety Training
Education and training throughout China to young people
Traffic accidents are a major cause of injury and death among children, so building road safety culture among school children can highly reduce road accidents.Totally we have trained more than 6,500 students in 16 cities in China since we launched the program in 2010. In 2015 alone, we have organized 13 sessions in 10 cities and more than 1000 studuents participated in our training which is highly appraised by schools and government.
The programs include lectures, traffic gesture exercise led by traffic policeman and games, aiming at changing their behavior and increase their awareness through interactive games and tests. Our employees of subsidiaries from 11 cities are highly involved. In addition, we held defensive driving training sessions for our employees through Elf Lubricants Guangzhou.
A preventive and culture building approach
Further, Total China has a comprehensive Road Safety Training kit including a teacher’s book, a student’s book, poster and certificate, etc. In each of the session, a widely spread communication campaign, both online and offline is organized to build the safety culture to a more general public in China society. Our program is mainly targeting at migrant workers’ children and starting from last year, real traffic policemen were also involved as trainers.
