IN U.K. THE TYRE OF THE YEAR 2009 IS PIRELLI P ZERO

Catherine Kirk, Trade & Consumer Marketing Manager Pirelli UK Tyres Ltd, receives the Auto Express Tyre of the Year Award 2009Pirelli triumphs in UK. The P Zero™ has beaten three other competitor brands to win the Auto Express Tyre of the Year Award for 2009.
Comprising several disciplines, including braking and handling in the wet and dry, aquaplaning, rolling resistance and price, the P Zero™ performed exceptionally well, resulting in Pirelli being voted the overall winner.
Auto Express commented: “Designing tyres is all about trading off performance in one area for a gain in another However, Pirelli has certainly hit on a winning compromise here, as the P Zero™ starred not only in the wet, but also in the dry. It topped the times on both handling tracks, plus got the honours in curved aquaplaning. No wonder it inspires confidence when the heavens open. A great all-rounder that thoroughly deserves a place on your car.”

PIRELLI CARLISLE: LESSONS IN SAFETY AT WORK

Carlisle HSEA Campus on Health, Safety and the Environment was held in Carlisle (UK) in March to encourage the use of the Behavioural Based Safety (BBS) method.

The campus involved all those who have a role, either directly or indirectly, in HSE, with the objective of developing a company culture oriented towards prevention and one which is also able to improve safety at work, leading to substantial improvements in business results by taking advantage of the best practices in use in the Group’s factories.

During the course, organised by Corporate HSE and HSE Tyre Europe with the support of HSE management in the UK, instructors, technicians and assistants learned to recognise and promote the activity that envisages safer conduct at work as a normal working method.
When faced with risky methods of work, the leaders explained the possible consequences of such repeated conduct over time and singled out the actions with which to modify them.  

Technicians from the Carlisle, Milan and Slatina (Rumania) factories took part in the HSE Campus. The leader of the course was the HSE manager of the factory in Izmit, Turkey.
