FCC is reacting to the social, economic, historical and legal phenomenon of traffic and the movement of people, carrying out a Strategic Road Safety Plan from 2010-2015 in response to the social and work-related problem of traffic accidents and in order to establish a road safety culture within the organisation.
The objective is to take a fully active role in the fight against road accidents in this field, work-related or otherwise. This role is upheld by the redirection and coordination of common efforts, new actions and involvement that go above and beyond the norm, reflecting the group’s citizen service business commitment.
Based on the diversity and diversification of the organisation’s activities, the project will be complemented with specific, varied, original and effective actions with a single focus involving four action plans and different procedures to develop these.
Health and safety in the workplace road safety plan: to reduce work-related traffic accidents (involving travel to and from the workplace and on missions).
Road health plan: to reduce the risk attributable to the psychological and physical state and conduct of drivers, to promote taking care of one’s health, and to issue health recommendations.
Road safety education plan: to disseminate, foster and encourage road safety training, education and information actions as part of the overall education provided to citizens. Special education for staff with disabilities.
Road mobility plan: to promote safe, civic, responsible and sustainable social habits during journeys, ensuring quality of life.
