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 Nestlé-NH&MP Drivers Training Institute is a fully equipped facility that has been providing training under the supervision of experts, not just to the drivers of Nestlé Pakistan and NH&MP, but is also catering to the drivers’ training needs of other public and corporate organisations of the country. The entire facility features a driving safety training track, two blocks comprising classrooms and also a high-tech driving simulator. Till date, the Drivers Safety Program has trained more than 23,500 drivers including over 5,100 Nestlé drivers. 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. The company has also replicated the existing initiatives in Karachi with NH&MP’s collaboration with the development of another Drivers Training Facility which has trained more than 1800 drivers till date.
