Visakhapatnam ( Andhra Pradesh ): A one-day workshop-cum-training program on “Sadak Suraksha se Jeevan Raksha” ( Safety of Life through Safety on the Road ) concept was conducted at Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited ( HPCL ) – Visakhapatnam LPG GAS refinery/ Terminal, behind Visakhapatnam Airport, to create awareness of road safety among their contract gas tanker drivers.
Organizers of the program were M Srinivas Rao, Senior Manager (Operations), HPCL – Visakhapatnam LPG Gas Terminal, and Venkatesh, Safety Officer, LPG Gas.
Mr. Srinivasa Rao and BK Ramesh were the speakers of the seminar.
On this occasion, BK Ramesh, under the guidance of Rajyogini Sister BK Sasikala from the Transport and Travel Wing, Brahma Kumaris, Railway New Colony centre, conducted a seminar for driving professionals.
Mr. Srinivas Rao, Senior Manager (Operations), praised the truck drivers for their uninterrupted and dedicated services for the LPG operations even during the Covid lockdown period, and advised to follow safety measures at all levels. He complimented Brahma Kumaris for supporting them to create a positive mindset for all in their respective duties.
BK Ramesh presented an hour-and-a-half seminar with meditation experiences to all the participants. He explained in a very simple way on the theme “Safety through Spirituality.” For drivers, safety is first, then driving skills with awareness, and a peaceful and cool mindset is needed. Waste thoughts and bad habits causes an individual to make faulty decisions, and hence have bad driving skills, prone to accidents on the road. So drivers should adopt spiritual values and practice meditation, so that they can make their mindsets cool and always be relaxed in their respective duties.”
Around 25 tanker drivers participated with complete discipline, and received benefit during this lockdown period.
