A new professional driving simulator for heavy transport drivers was inaugurated, with the purpose of training the drivers of Cementos Progreso and external companies, on road safety, industrial safety, quality processes and punctuality.
The Spanish company «Lander Simulation» was in charge of installing the simulator that has state-of-the-art software that is designed with characteristics of the country’s streets, in addition to having the dimensions of real heavy vehicles.
«This initiative was born in 2013 with the aim of providing heavy transport drivers with a tool to face the constant challenges that exist in the country’s road network.»
Now, drivers can be evaluated in different vital aspects for driving, thanks to the incident module that measures the ability of drivers to react to adverse situations and avoid accidents that put their lives and those of public road users at risk. .
Over the years, the NSC (National Safety Council) defensive driving methodology was implemented, certifying drivers and allowing Cementos Progreso to become a pioneer company in the professional training of transporters in the country.
The professional driving simulation center has trained more than 750 heavy transport drivers and specialized machinery operators.
