Drivers Safety Training Program
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. We developed the second driver training facility for 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 National Highway and Motorway Police (NH&MP), but also catering for the drivers’ training needs of other public and corporate organisations in the country. The facilities feature driving safety trainings track, blocks comprising of classrooms and also high-tech driving simulators. With state of the art driver training facilities in Sheikhupura and Karachi, the Drivers Safety Program has trained more than 25,783 drivers including over 6,010 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.
