In 2021, over 1.3 million people lost their lives as a result of road traffic crashes1 , representing more than 3,500 people every day. TotalEnergies has chosen November 20, the United Nations World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, to release the sixth and last episode in its #SafeDriver campaign on maneuvering vehicles and lines of fire.
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is commemorated each year to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world's roads, along with their families and the many others affected. It is also an opportunity to remind us all that road traffic accidents are not an inevitability, but an issue that we can fix, with education, hard work and cooperation.
This date allows TotalEnergies to remind everyone that Safety is one of the Company's core values and must be applied throughout our projects and operations on a daily basis. Worksites and plants are rife with potential risks (poorly parked vehicles, surrounding noise that could conceal the sound of vehicles and affect individuals' reaction times, blind spots, and so on), so it is vitally important to keep those risks in mind in an effort to avoid accidents. Everywhere, the Company acts to preserve the safety and health of our employees, the personnel of our partner companies and everyone involved.
