ARUBA ESSO NEWS



The above group of Lago employees and representatives of Esso
Central America and Esso SAPA, Argentina participated in an In-
ventory Techniques for Effective Management (ITEM) course from
April 24 — 28 in the Administration Building. The course was taught
by Stephen Hull (at right) of Exxon MCS - Florham Park. The course
covered: Management Concepts, Order Control Procedures, Fore-

casting and Evaluation and Review Activities.

What Can Help Reduce Traffic Accidents
Besides a ‘Sense of Responsibility?”

Accidents, including traffic acci-
dents, just don’t happen because of
just bad luck! In most cases, they
are caused. This may be because of
human or material failures. Human
errors are mostly caused through in-
attention or negligence and not so
much because of ignorance.

Safe driving, first of all, requires
a great dosis of ’’sense of responsibi-
lity’ — for yourself, your family, for
the other driver, for pedestrians.

Your sense of responsibility tells
you what to do or not to do:

. If you are not qualified to drive,
don’t venture on the road.

. If you drive, don’t drink — if
you drink, don’t drive.

. Check your car brakes, lights,

"GIMME ROOM!”

horn, tires if they are in proper
condition.

. Adjust your speed to road and

traffic conditions.

. Give proper traffic signals and

ON TIME.

. Don’t pass other vehicles where

or when such is prohibited.

. Look always where you're going,

also when reversing.

. Use your mirrors frequently to

observe cars moving behind
you.

. Use your horn when the situa-

tion so requires.

. Keep the windshield clean for

proper view.

. Remember that roads are slip-

perv when wet.

. Don’t drive when you are sleepy,

feel drowsy or dizzy.

. Maintain safe braking distance

from the car in front.

. Watch out for pedestrians, espe-

cially children and oldsters.

. Be extra careful for bikes, mo-

torbikes and motorcycles.

. Don't blind other drivers with

your sharp lights.

. Observe all traffic lights and

traffic signs.

. Be alert for unsafe actions of

other drivers.

. Allow passengers to get out be-

fore you move on; move only
when all passengers are seated.

The above group of Lago employees and representatives of Esso
Central America and Esso SAPA, Argentina participated in an In-
ventory Techniques for Effective Management (ITEM) course from
April 24 — 28 in the Administration Building. The course was taught
by Stephen Hull (at right) of Exxon MCS - Florham Park. The course
covered: Management Concepts, Order Control Procedures, Fore-

casting and Evaluation and Review Activities.

What Can Help Reduce Traffic Accidents
Besides a ‘Sense of Responsibility?”

Accidents, including traffic acci-
dents, just don’t happen because of
just bad luck! In most cases, they
are caused. This may be because of
human or material failures. Human
errors are mostly caused through in-
attention or negligence and not so
much because of ignorance.

Safe driving, first of all, requires
a great dosis of ’’sense of responsibi-
lity’ — for yourself, your family, for
the other driver, for pedestrians.

Your sense of responsibility tells
you what to do or not to do:

. If you are not qualified to drive,
don’t venture on the road.

. If you drive, don’t drink — if
you drink, don’t drive.

. Check your car brakes, lights,

"GIMME ROOM!”

horn, tires if they are in proper
condition.

. Adjust your speed to road and

traffic conditions.

. Give proper traffic signals and

ON TIME.

. Don’t pass other vehicles where

or when such is prohibited.

. Look always where you're going,

also when reversing.

. Use your mirrors frequently to

observe cars moving behind
you.

. Use your horn when the situa-

tion so requires.

. Keep the windshield clean for

proper view.

. Remember that roads are slip-

perv when wet.

. Don’t drive when you are sleepy,

feel drowsy or dizzy.

. Maintain safe braking distance

from the car in front.

. Watch out for pedestrians, espe-

cially children and oldsters.

. Be extra careful for bikes, mo-

torbikes and motorcycles.

. Don't blind other drivers with

your sharp lights.

. Observe all traffic lights and

traffic signs.

. Be alert for unsafe actions of

other drivers.

. Allow passengers to get out be-

fore you move on; move only
when all passengers are seated.
