TWI Pakistan completes second phase of the Executive Safety Leadership Training for US AID Power Distribution Program

Back in January, US AID funded over 100 managers in power distribution companies to gain essential health and safety training from TWI Pakistan. Ahmed Jahanzaib, Country Manager, TWI Pakistan was delighted to announce the first ever occupational health and safety training venture for the nine major power distribution companies in Pakistan.

Ahmed said: “We should celebrate this major achievement in providing services of customised training in the field of occupational health and safety to the power distribution sector. USAID Power Distribution Program is a US AIDPDP-funded program aimed at working jointly with the nine government owned electric power distribution companies in Pakistan to improve their productivity and output. USAID PDP also focuses on improving the occupational health and safety skills of all employees by ensuring they receive world-class occupational health and safety training. TWI Pakistan was chosen to deliver such training due to its excellent reputation amongst clients and unrivalled experience in providing customised solutions to their customers.”

After great results from the first phase of training, TWI Pakistan was honored once again to successfully develop and conduct the second phase for senior managers. The training was delivered in March by Mr Hamid P Ebrahimi, TWI’s Regional HSE Manager, at the Hill View Hotel in Pakistan. It took place over three days with formal presentations, audio and visual aids and interactive group activities to ensure active participation and knowledge transfer between all delegates.

As well as delivering essential competency skills that will reduce risk and optimise the safe working environment, the training was also a very useful and effective motivational tool, delivered in preparation of the change management process within the power distribution companies of Pakistan. There has been increasing pressure on managers to be more aware of the dangers in the workplace, especially when working in such high-risk environments, and to take responsibility in the reduction of accidents and potential dangers. The training was customised to ensure that these pressures were realised by all candidates and that managers would leave the course with the understanding that health and safety is an integral part of their role and a very serious responsibility.

Mr Hamid P. Ebrahimi also received an award from US AID PDP in recognition of his expert training and highly valued services.
