National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP) and Nestlé Pakistan jointly broke ground for a Road Safety Institute, recently.
This is the second collaboration between Nestlé Pakistan and the NH&MP. In 2009, the first Drivers’ Training Facility was established in Sheikhupura. So far 14,000 drivers from across the country have been trained.
The foundation for the institute – which will be located on the Super Highway – was laid by Zulfiqar Ahmed Cheema, the NH&MP Inspector General, and a team from Nestlé Pakistan.
“Nestlé Pakistan’s support to the institute reinforces its emphasis on the safety and well-being of the communities it operates in,” said Waqar Ahmad, the Head of Corporate Affairs at Nestlé Pakistan. “We need to focus on driver training to ensure safety of the general public and the drivers themselves.”
IG Zulfiqar Cheema expressed appreciation towards Nestlé’s committed support towards training of drivers. “We need organizations to step up just like Nestlé has. Road accident figures are increasing exponentially and imparting training to those behind the wheel can make a huge difference.”
The training facility will not only train Nestlé Pakistan’s drivers based in the southern parts of the country, but will also provide training to drivers of other public and corporate organizations in the region.
