Saving lives for more than 50 years

Around half of all fatalities involving trucks could be avoided with the use of a seatbelt. It’s vital that every new generation of drivers understands how important an invention it is. Because saving lives means more to us than anything else.

Volvo Trucks global leaders in safety

With night mode, drivers have the option of instantly switching off all unnecessary dashboard backlights with the press of a button. The result is less glare in the driver’s field of vision, and fewer distractions from reflections in the windscreen and side mirrors. It is best suited to long-haul drivers when driving at night, and when reversing and manoeuvring in tough weather conditions or complex environments, such as when connecting or disconnecting trailers.

PREVENTING ACCIDENTS

Our active safety initiatives are designed to avoid the errors that cause around 90% of all traffic accidents. So we help our drivers see more. We keep them comfortable and focused. And we equip our trucks with systems and technology that take safety to the next level.

Reducing injury

Unfortunately, accidents do happen – so our passive safety initiatives focus on minimising the risk of injury when they do. As a result, we concentrate on building trucks that give the driver, passengers and other road users as much protection as possible.

'Know Your Blind Spots' Campaign

Know Your Blind Spots Campaign

BLIND SPOTS are locations around a truck where the truck driver is unable to see cars/bikes/people around him. In many cases, fatal accidents occur when truck drivers pull out unaware that there is a car in their BLIND SPOT or a car/bike cuts in front of them without warning. At Volvo, SAFETY is our core value and we make it our mission to keep this top of mind in drivers’ minds.

In 2016, we are championing this cause to re-emphasize SAFETY on roads and to reinforce Volvo as synonymous with safety. Think Safety, Think Volvo.

This campaign is supported by MIROS, JPJ and SPAD.
