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 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.”

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.
