The lack of proper knowledge and the absence of safe driving practices and procedures are among the major causes of accidents on highways. Nestlé Pakistan in collaboration with the National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP), established the first Drivers’ Training Institute near Sheikhupura with the objective of ensuring the safety and well-being of the communities it operates in. The company developed the second driver training facility for the drivers in Karachi.
The Nestlé-NH&MP Drivers Training Institutes are fully equipped facilities that have been providing trainings, under the supervision of experts, not just to the drivers of Nestlé Pakistan and NH&MP, but also drivers’ from other public and corporate organizations of the country. The facilities feature driving safety training track, blocks comprising of classrooms and also high-tech driving simulators. With state of art driver training facilities in Sheikhupura and Karachi, the Drivers Safety Program has trained more than 29,800 drivers including over 6,900 drivers from Nestlé service providers. Apart from the professional and economic impact, the Program has also created a positive social impact not only on the drivers themselves, but also on their families and the communities that they live in.
