Safe Crossings and Holcim work together on road safety in Bangladesh
Holcim Bangladesh has become the first company in Bangladesh to join the road safety coalition of Safe Crossings. Next to financial support for the N2 program, Holcim and Safe Crossings will set up a project in Comilla to improve the visibility of rickshaw drivers in the dark.
Poor visibility is one of the main causes rickshaw drivers get involved in road crashes. A low-cost and very effective solution is to provide rickshaw drivers with a set of reflectors that make their rickshaw visible in the dark.
