Volvo Trucks global leaders in safety

SAFETY – IT’S IN OUR DNA

We’re leaders in traffic safety. And our vision is that no truck is to be involved in an accident. We established our Accident Research Team in 1969 and have been at the frontline of safety ever since – pioneering innovations that prevent accidents and reduce injuries. Not only for the driver. For everyone.

Saving lives for more than 50 years

Around half of all fatalities involving trucks could be avoided with the use of a seatbelt. It’s vital that every new generation of drivers understands how important an invention it is. Because saving lives means more to us than anything else.

With night mode, drivers have the option of instantly switching off all unnecessary dashboard backlights with the press of a button. The result is less glare in the driver’s field of vision, and fewer distractions from reflections in the windscreen and side mirrors. It is best suited to long-haul drivers when driving at night, and when reversing and manoeuvring in tough weather conditions or complex environments, such as when connecting or disconnecting trailers.

Preventing accidents

Our active safety initiatives are designed to avoid the errors that cause around 90% of all traffic accidents. So we help our drivers see more. We keep them comfortable and focused. And we equip our trucks with systems and technology that take safety to the next level.

Reducing Injury

Unfortunately, accidents do happen – so our passive safety initiatives focus on minimising the risk of injury when they do. As a result, we concentrate on building trucks that give the driver, passengers and other road users as much protection as possible.
