On Thursday, May 24, Yokohama conducted in partnership with YASA, a "Road & Tire Safety Awareness Session" to employees of Holcim.
Holcim Lebanon was established in 1929 and it is now known as one of the leading cement companies in Lebanon.
The session, attended by fleet managers, truck drivers and truck maintenance engineers, was led by Mr. Michel Sassine and Mr. Charles Howayek, representatives of Yokohama Lebanon. The session was mainly focused on tire safety instructions, maintenance and basic tire knowledge, as well as Yokohama Lebanon's role in creating awareness about road and tire safety among the public.
Mr. Ziad Akl, president and founder of YASA, discussed with attendees the new traffic law, how to implement it and the importance of following the law, specially by heavy truck drivers, in order to prevent serious and fatal accidents.
Yokohama partnered with YASA earlier this year, in a bid to educate and influence people for the prevention of unintentional road related injuries and deaths.
