Patrol Cars


  • The aim is to maximize the effectiveness of fatality-reducing programs by ensuring strategic use of patrol cars during on-site patrol and checks, while also raising awareness of, and commitment to, industrial safety through increasing the visibility of frequent checks, thereby helping to meet the target for fatality reduction and improve the on-site mobility of patrol agents.
