Ahmed Jahanzaib, Country Manager, TWI Pakistan is 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
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.”
The tailor-made course, Executive Safety Leadership Training, was held over three
days in a workshop style forum. 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.
Training topics included health and safety management systems, hazards identification,
risk assessment techniques, controls of risk leadership, safety culture of an organisation
and accident investigation and prevention.
The course was led by Mr. Hamid P. Ebrahimi, HSE Product Development Manager, TWI
Turkey. Mr. Tufail Ahmed Shiekh, Quality and Safety Advisor for USAID Power Distribution
Program, also participated in all opening sessions to keep the managers highly motivated
and demonstrate his support for the program.
All candidates were extremely pleased with the course and the efforts and training
standards delivered by TWI Pakistan. Feedback was excellent and more than evident
from the forms filled in by the candidates at the end of training session. More
importantly, all managers agreed that health and safety training should be compulsory
from now on.
