Safety is built into our brand heritage and is a central part of our identity. Globally, more than 1.3 million people die each year in road accidents. To aim for safety for all road users is crucial if we are to reduce these numbers. We look at safety from different perspectives, inside as well as outside the truck. It's this approach that enables us to create systems that go beyond what's required by authorities. And it guides us towards our vision of zero accidents with Volvo trucks.
We envision a sustainable future where transport solutions are safer and more efficient for a positive development of society. As long as there's a risk of accidents occurring – Volvo Trucks will continue to lead the way for safer transportation. 90 years of dedication to safety has taught us that requirements keep changing.
For us, developing safer trucks has always been about more than protection. Utilising the advances in technology, we create smart safety systems that are designed to monitor the truck behaviour and surrounding traffic to predict safety hazards and intervene to prevent accidents from happening. The systems may be out of sight but they are engineered to activate, in order to support the driver in many different situations. Making the trucks as safe as possible for the driver and all other road users. Safety for everyone.
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.
