Glovo Ghana has partnered the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service to educate over 150 Glovo couriers on safety training.
The training focused on road safety areas including Road safety problem/Accidents Statistics, and Road Traffic Law of Ghana including RTA 683/04 as amended by act 761/08, L.I.2180/2012, and Ghana Highway code/1974 among others.
Speaking at the event, Pearlyn Budu, General Manager for Glovo Ghana noted that the safety training also aimed at promoting road safety in the country.
“To ensure we are protecting our riders and the general public, we decided to have this safety training to better equip our riders with road safety information. This is because we realised there is a huge rise in motor traffic accidents on our roads. As a multi-category delivery service company, we are heavily investing in educating our riders on proper road safety practices,” she said.
“We all need education such as this to curb road accidents on our roads and so we made this invitation open to other dispatch riders who are not Glovo staff. And to refresh them from time to time, we intend to do this periodically”, she added.
Touching on customers’ feedback so far on Glovo’s products and services, Ms Budu said her outfit has received positive feedback.
“So far, we have received positive feedback since our operations started in Ghana. People are very excited about the products we have. Because of our multi-category delivery service, customers can sit at the comfort of their homes, offices, or anywhere in Accra to receive what they need”.
On his part, Head of Education, Research and Training at the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Alexander Obeng, commended Glovo for this sensitisation programme on road safety.
