Passenger safety remains the supreme priority of the Pakistan Railways and this was emphasized during recently conducted safety workshops in Karachi Division last month and lately in Sukkur Division during a session on the subject of safety of train operations.
Sukkar: An important workshop on Safety of Train Operation was the topic of the workshop organized at Sukkur by Shoaib Adil, COPS Safety, on July 1.
The participants of workshop were explained that passengers were VIP guests of Pakistan Railways and they needed to be taken care of their lives. The Railway staff was advised by the COPS Safety to remain vigilant at all times in order to ensure safe journey of the passengers.
As we say the best safety device is the vigilant railway man. No safety device can match their abilities and strengths to protect and save passengers lives than their vigilance and commitment to their duties, Shoaib Adil highlighted.
It was an interactive workshop and participants were allowed more time to express their views. More importantly their valuable feedback was recorded to further look after safety requirements. This feedback will be built in to further strengthen safety protocols.
The workshop was attended by more than 50 officers and officials from Traffic, Civil, Mechanical, Signal Telecommunications and Police. This series of safety workshops shall be further extended to Rawapindi, Quetta and Peshawar Divisions.
