#VVVSAFETYSELFIE

 
Each year during the month of June, Valvoline celebrates Safety Month. We take this time to encourage our employees to follow and adopt safe practices at work and home.
 
In 2018, we conducted a companywide “Safety Selfie” scontest where our employees took selfies showing an action or behavior they or their family takes to be safe. We had nearly 100 selfies submitted.
 
Please view the safety selfies below to learn various steps you can take to be safe at work, home or play.

    Forklift Safe Driving: Enure pre-use inspection is complete. Seat belt on, hands at 10&2, use horn around corners and blind spots, watch for pedestrians at all times, observe speed limit and blue lights on to give warning to pedestrians.

    As a driver it is important to wear your high vis uniform while at work. It makes it easier for people to see you especially at various customer locations.

    Say NO to road rage! Always keep a good mental state of mind when driving. Do not let road rage get the best of you. Patience is a virtue.

  • Lynne L Pierson
    Willow Springs, IL

    When driving or stopped in traffic - leave ample space between you and the driver ahead of you. This will allow you enough room to exit in case of an emergency or enough time to stop in case of an abrupt traffic stop. (P.S. Photo was safely taken in a parking lot when the car was not in motion)

  • Lynne L Pierson
    Willow Springs, IL

    Consider driving with your windows up especially during the time of the year when bugs are active. An unexpected insect flying into your car while you are driving can cause unexpected panic and may result in you making abrupt decisions that can cause an accident.

    My van is parked inside our attached car garage however my husband parks his vehicle on the driveway. My husband is not allowed to leave the garage door opener in his vehicle because if someone breaks into his vehicle they will have full access to our home by simply pressing a button on the garage door opener.

    Buckle Up For Safety ~ always ensure you and your passenger are buckled up before driving!

  • Lynne L Pierson

    Try not to run your gas tank down too close to empty. You never know when you will be stuck in traffic and need to keep your car running to battle cold or hot weather elements outside your vehicle. I try not to go below a half of tank of gas.

  • Lynne L Pierson
    Willow Springs, IL

    I do not hang anything off my rear view mirror so as to eliminate distractions and prevent hindering my full view.

  • Lynne L Pierson
    Willow Springs, IL

    Always keep the area around the gas pedals and brake pedals debris and garbage free. You do not want anything to get stuck or lodged under the gas or brake pedals hindering their purpose because it can cause you to get in an accident.

  • Lynne L Pierson

    I have twin 3 year old toddlers and the back seat of my minivan is always clear of clutter. In case of emergency I would like to be able to get to them as soon as possible without risking getting hurt by clutter.

  • Lynne L Pierson
    Willow Springs, IL

    We have unpredictable weather in Chicago and I have twin 3 year old toddlers so I always travel with extra blankets and extra clothes in the car in case of a breakdown.

  • Jason Hutchison

    It is important to check your tire pressure periodically because changing temperatures will impact the PSI.

  • Steve Ashe

    1st part of driving safely is getting your car serviced at VIOC! They ensure your vehicle is safe every oil change by checking all fluids, tires, lights and preventive maintenance needs. Thank you Julian Torres and the team at 040012 for the awesome service!

  • Kevin Hughes

    OUR LIVES ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE TEXT OR THE PHONE CALL!! USE HANDS FREE ON YOUR DEVICE, OR ANSWER IT WHEN YOU ARE STOPPED!!

  • Kevin Hughes

    Be sure your windows and mirrors are clean!!

  • Nate Snyder

    Bad wiper blades smear your windshield, decreasing visibility in rain and snow. I change mine twice a year to keep them in good shape.

  • Gary Allen
    Lexington, KY

    I try to use back-in (or pull-through) parking whenever I can, so I have a better and safer view when I leave the parking space.
