Defensive Driving

Nebosh Brochure

India accounts for highest number of road accident casualties in the world. More than two-third accidents involve collision due to poor driving skills. There is high price tag involved in each accident in terms of injury, death, damage to property due to collision. Further, if lost productivity and job loss days are taken into account, probably the loss is much higher. To counter these kinds of anomalies, the need is to impart defensive driving training, which in turn saves lives, time, and money.
