Workers trained on road safety and moral behaviour
Sep 6, 2014-
The Swargadwari Sarbajanik Transport Entrepreneur Committee went ahead with the training in fear that the transport workers’ actions will eventually defame the business community, said Sunal Shahi Lekali, chairman of the committee.
“We have trained more than 1000 workers including drivers of 116 vehicles in districts associated with the committee.”
“It is need of the hour to teach them moral conduct since most of them are not educated,” he said, urging the government and various organisations to invest in teaching basic ethics to the transport workers.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Dipak Regmi said that two road accidents took place in the district recently due to the negligence of the drivers, who were said to be using mobile phones on duty.
“It is the responsibility of transport workers to safely take passengers to their destinations. A minor mistake can cost human and physical loss,” he said, adding that such training should be conducted at lease twice a year.
The trainers were people from different walks of life like the health sector and police force.
Transport workers, who participated in the training, said they have definately learned a lot during the sessions.
“Our occupation is also praise-worthy if we transport workers work with good manner,” said a driver, Surendra Khadka.
