Zoom Alliance builds on capacity of workers
By Stephen Odoi-Larbi
120 staff, drawn from Zoomlion Ghana Limited and other waste management firms that form the Zoom Alliance, are currently undergoing a three-day intensive training programme to upgrade themselves on the essentials of effective driving management science.
Included among the trainees were 90 drivers, fifteen mechanics and fifteen janitorial personnel.
They are being taken through modules such as Driver Habits and Ethics, Essentials of Vehicle Maintenance, Customer Care, Occupational Health, Vehicle Operations, Fleet Management Technology and Basic Reporting.
The programme, which took off last Saturday, September 8, 2012, was expected to end on yesterday, Monday, September 10, 2012. It was under the theme “Essentials of Effective Driving Management Science.”
Mr. A.B. Adjei, Managing Director of Zoom Alliance (ZA) Ghana Limited, in his address, urged the participating personnel to take their lessons very serious, and put into practice what they would learn to ensure a high delivery of service which had eluded customers over the years.
According to him, the investment in the training programme was born out of the fact that environmental sanitation and cleanliness remained a vital pre-requisite in building a healthy and wealthy nation.
To him, though the country had made tremendous gains in public health and sanitation conditions, a lot of challenges still remain in the area of waste storage facilities and equipment, improperly structured waste management schemes, which disregard environmental and financial sustainability, as well as unconventional and poorly managed disposal systems.
It was this score, he noted, that led to the formation of the ZA to ensure that all residents in the country have access to waste storage containers, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable waste collection services, as well as identifying and implementing permanent solutions for waste disposal.
Eng. Haruna Sulley, Managing Director of Zoom Domestic, who chaired the function, also urged the participants to embrace the concept of training, and try as much as possible to take their lessons seriously.
