Papaellinas Group of Companies is dedicated and devoted towards Corporate Social Responsibility. As a part of the CSR program the Papaellinas Group is committing to the European Road Safety Charter with the following:
The contents and illustrations of our seminars include incidents of car accidents, road behaviour, explanation of road signs and signals, etc. Videos with real car accident are projected and analysed to the audience (by the lecturer), indicating the reasons that caused the accident and how it could be avoided. A chapter of the syllabus covers Proactive Road Safety. All drivers learn how to be proactive so that car accidents can be avoided at the maximum level. Also, some tests are given by the lecturer at the end of the seminar in order to understand that the audience comprehend the most of it.
Lastly, a seminar is also repeated once a year at the Road Safety Park for all the families of our company to attend. The Road Safety Park is designed to meet the needs of both the theoretical as well as practical aspects of training on issues of road safety. With this seminar we aim to enlighten young drivers' members of our employees' families on road safety improving also their driving skills. This seminar is also conducted and facilitated by specially trained police personnel. We anticipate that approximately 200 adults and 150 children will attend.
This training is in addition to the normal training we provide to fleet drivers.
We will create a new Fleet Manager post that will have the following responsibilities, duties and evaluations:
The above actions are implemented and enforced upon the whole fleet of the group and our commitment will be for a three year period. We will review the first year actions in order to evaluate and continue with action plans.
