Our vision of a zero-accident future is one which covers all road users, guides the way to a better future – and drives us towards our goal of making the world’s safest trucks.

Central to our heritage, and part of our DNA

Globally, more than 1 million people die each year in road accidents. If we are to reduce these numbers, we must consider safety for all road users. So we look at safety from different perspectives: inside as well as outside the truck. This approach enables us to create systems that go beyond what's required by legislation, and guides us towards our vision of zero accidents involving our trucks.

Safety for everyone

Our safety vision is about safety for everyone. Because for us, developing safer trucks has always been about more than protection. We create smart safety systems that are designed to monitor truck behavior and surrounding traffic – not just to protect, but to predict safety hazards and react. The systems may be out of sight, but they are engineered to activate and to support the driver in a wide variety of conceivable situations. For the safety of the driver, as well as all other road users. 

Our vision is zero accidents with Volvo trucks. Cutting-edge vehicle technology is essential to reduce accidents and injuries. Nonetheless - the most important safety system even in a modern truck is still the driver.

Towards zero accidents

With safety, everything is about people. Safety of people inside the cab is important, but so is the safety of people outside the truck. And as well as delivering safety systems designed to reduce harm and avoid accidents, safety for Volvo is about spreading awareness – educating, informing, changing attitudes and making a difference in society.

Our vision of zero accidents is one which leads to innovations, developments, initiatives and more. And you can explore the initiatives and developments that help turn the vision into reality.
