Good Practice: Safe and efficient vehicle management

It’s not a huge revelation that vehicle safety is a significant concern for any organisation. This is largely due to the fact that fleet-related accidents can cost companies big time.

To address and tackle the above safety concerns, Sonadih Cement Plant (SCP) has developed the existing truck parking yard with defined parking places for different category of vehicles.
