Udaipur Shell Lubricants India, the global market leader in finished lubricants, has always been a frontrunner in driving awareness about health and safety, positively impacting lives across the country. In line with itscommitment, the companyhas started free eye check-up camps for truck drivers, mechanics and related transport staff at multiple hubs across the country including Transport Nagars in Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Chennai, Ambala and Jaipur.
The idea of the camps arose from the insight of a great number of road accidents occurring due to often undiagnosed and untreated vision issues. Starting in February, Shell has already conducted more than 13,000 eye check-ups this year and distributed more than 9,000 free eyeglasses. In the absence of quality healthcare, a mobile population such as that of truck drivers is seldom able to prioritize their health. This is highlighted by the fact that more than half the people who received these glasses were not aware of their vision issues or were unable to get their eyesight checked on account of being always on the go.
