HIGHWAY HEROES

One person dies every 4 minutes in road accident on our highways. Nearly 1.45 Lac lives are lost every year, majority of whom are the main bread-earner for their families (source: Report by Ministry of Road Transport & Highways). Drivers’ fault account for 78.5% (3,81, 648 accidents) of the accidents and more than 30% of the total road accident deaths are associated with trucks annually.
With a view to improve road safety standards and awareness, Magma launched Magma Highway Heroes – Truckers’ wellbeing, a training cum health & safety programme for the Truck drivers since March 2015. We have Petroleum Conservation & Research Association (PCRA), Govt of India as our training partners. Till Dec’19 we have conducted camps at 200 plus location and have trained around 1.8 lac truck drivers in our Magma Highway Heroes camps. The camps have also helped Drivers learn techniques to save fuel which is an additional benefit to the participants at the camps. Further, we have doctors treating the truckers of basic ailments and provide medicines. Over 1.5 Lac truckers have been benefitted of the medical consultations.
