ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance whilst lowering the environmental impact. ABB employs about 1,800 people in Poland.
ABB wishes to raise driver awareness (about 300 people) about the principal hazards of driving company cars on business trips and commuting, and driving private cars for company matters. Therefore, the company created and is implementing the ABB ORSG (Occupational Road Safety Guide), which describes necessary safety behaviour on the road. Every ABB driver agrees to observe the guide by signing a confirmation form. Each year, ABB organises an internal information campaign to reinforce the importance of road safety, using different communication channels to teach every employee.
Moreover, ABB promotes, whenever possible, alternatives to business trips such as telephone calls and videoconferences.
