Total E&P Uganda Thursday launched a road safety sensitization campaign for schools in Buliisa aimed at raising road safety awareness among young people and reducing the number of road fatalities and injuries.

The road safety campaign that will be conducted within Total’s area of operations starting with the districts of Bulliisa and Nebbi, store http://coupon-ads.com/wp-includes/bookmark.php using the “Total Safety Cube” to sensitize schools and communities about road safety, viagra 40mg was launched by Buliisa district chairman, Fred Lukumu at Uganda Martyrs Secondary school in the district.

The “Total Safety Cube” is a box assembling tools to deliver road safety awareness to include a teacher’s book, student’s reference book, road signs, and posters.

The campaign that will run until late November 2014 is expected to equip young people with skills and understanding to handle themselves responsibly and safely while using the road.

Speaking at the launch, Lucien Dat, Total E&P Uganda Field Health, Safety and Environment Superintendent said that as a responsible development partner, safety is a No.1 priority not only for Total’s employees but also for the environment and the surrounding communities. “Today, Uganda has the second highest rate of road accidents in Africa and the world after Ethiopia.

According to the Uganda Police Force’s annual traffic accidents report 2011, the number of road accidents has greatly increased from 19,867 accidents in 2007 to 22,272 accidents in 2011, while the deaths from such incidents rose from 2,5t7 in 2007 to 3,343 in 2011. Total E&P Uganda identified these shocking statistics as a call to action for the company and the Road Safety initiative was borne.”

“As Uganda prepares for the production phase of the oil and gas sector, traffic flow in the Albertine area is expected to increase and we want to ensure that our young generation is adequately equipped to handle the pressure of safe road usage during this time. It is therefore important that these young people are made aware of the risks and are provided with strategies to take positive actions to remain safe. We will start off the project in Buliisa and move onto other districts in our area of operation,” he added.

Lukumu commended Total E&P Uganda for such a noble initiative and called upon corporate companies in the country to emulate such development strategies aimed at safe guarding the lives of Ugandans.

“Buliisa district has been a hive of activity over the past few years and this has brought with it many dangers especially traffic accidents due to lack of knowledge by the population on proper road safety measures. This initiative by Total E&P Uganda is a welcome venture and we appreciate your commitment to safeguarding and improving the lives of the Buliisa community and the country at large.

Total E&P Uganda is the operator for Exploration Area 1 & 1A – Lyec of the Albertine region.
