Cycle safely with Peterson

As part of our CSR programme Dare to Care Peterson is visiting schools for children aged 4 - 12 with our trucks to educate them about cycling safely in traffic. Children are taught about the risks of a blind spot and learn how to act safely in traffic.

Safety is of the utmost importance at Peterson. That's not only applicable to our quaysides and warehouse facilities, in the offices there are guidelines and regulations too to work safely and beware aware of potential risks.

"This spring Peterson has found the connection with local schools in the area of Den Helder (the Netherlands) to instruct and educate children abouth the blind spot of a truck. Children in the Netherlands need to be aware of the risks involved to know how to safely cycle in traffic."

Jan Schipper, Regional Director


Visiting the local schools proved to be a great success. Children were excited to get to sit inside the cabin of a truck and were eager to learn about the tips and tricks to participate in traffic.
