Safety issues start on the way to work

| December 2, 2013

Imperial Tobacco’s business in Madagascar is providing training aimed at helping its employees stay safe on the country’s roads.

The road risk training has been provided for those working at the SACIMEM manufacturing plant in Antsirabe.

Outside towns and cities, the majority of roads on the Indian Ocean island are dirt tracks, and many of them become impassable during the rainy season.

Employees were invited to attend a two hour training course that was led by an expert instructor and designed to improve their road safety awareness.

Those who took part received a diploma of good practice and a booklet in the local Malagasy language to help reinforce the lessons learned.

“This training will be of enormous benefit for our people coping with the hazardous driving conditions found here in Madagascar,” said factory manager Hervé Lamy.

The next step in the program will focus on safety equipment for motorbike riders and vehicle safety checks.
