ROAD SURVIVAL PROGRAMME
On 8 October 2010, PPB organised a "Road Survival" programme as part of its CSR activities for its employees. The programme which was facilitated by a well-known safety activist, Captain K Balasupramaniam, was well received with a good turnout of about 100 persons.
Captain Bala, an affable and amusing speaker, captivated the attendees for 2.5 hours with his experiences, video presentation complete with gory pictures to remind us of the consequences of negligence on the road, practical demonstrations and tips on road safety. The topics covered were amongst others, dealing with car breakdowns and accidents, extinguishing a car fire, handling flooded roads, preparation for emergencies, car-jacking and other road hazards.
After the programme, the attendees gathered for some refreshment whilst catching up with one another. Overall, the attendees enjoyed the session and asked for more awareness talks.
