Nearly 350 participants join the TITAN Zlatna Panega safe driving campaign "Drive carefully. Arrive Safely"


The campaign launched its first initiative with the assistance of Dimitar Iliev's Safety Driving Academy

Nearly 300 employees and subcontractors are participating in the Safety Driving campaign of TITAN Zlatna Panega, titled "Drive Carefully. Arrive Safely." The campaign launched its first initiative with the assistance of Safety Driving Academy founded by eight-time rally champion of Bulgaria, Dimitar Iliev. For three days - from April 24th to 26th, employees had the opportunity to go through four simulators and experience situations such as car overturning, frontal collision, as well as understand the distortion of reality while driving under the influence of alcohol with special ALCO glasses.

The four different simulators, available at the parking lot of the TITAN Zlatna Panega Plant, immersed employees in various stressful road situations. Under the guidance of experts from Dimitar Iliev’s team, participants felt the sensation of a car overturning and realized the importance of wearing seat belts in both the front and rear seats. The frontal collision simulator recreated the force of a so-called "whiplash" impact, while the ALCO glasses allowed participants to experience their balance and vision after consuming alcohol levels of 0.8 and 1.5%.

"The goal of the simulators is to demonstrate that while accidents cannot be completely avoided, it is possible to prevent their fatal consequences by taking all necessary precautions. We are delighted to be part of the TITAN Zlatna Panega campaign and contribute to improving the safety of our employees," commented the team of Dimitar Iliev. For many years, he has been leading his driving safety school, where thousands of drivers have improved their skills behind the wheel.

The joint initiative with the Safety Driving Academy is just the beginning of the extensive "Drive Carefully, Arrive Safely" campaign of TITAN Zlatna Panega. By the end of the year, a series of initiatives are planned within it to focus employees' attention on the importance of road safety.

"Health and safety are our top priorities, and our main goal is to prevent any workplace accidents. It's no coincidence that we decided to dedicate 2024 to Road Safety. The campaign aims to show that road safety is important for everyone, whether driving a heavy truck, a car or simply crossing a pedestrian path. Each of us bears responsibility for our own lives and those of others," said Milen Stanev, Plant Manager of TITAN Zlatna Panega.

TITAN Zlatna Panega is committed to improving its procedures and practices in the long term to ensure a safe and healthy working environment. Its efforts for safety go beyond legal requirements and are based on its desire and commitment to prevention and safe execution of every activity, regardless of its priority. TITAN Zlatna Panega actively supports the training of its employees on topics such as safety and risk prevention, applying the best practices in the industry.
