Uphold road safety standards

Saturday, January 12, 2013

SAFETY standards should never be compromised, the Land Transport Authority said.

And all decisions should be made as directed by policies, LTA's manager Standards & Compliance Faiyum Ali said.

In his message in the authority's ninth edition of its newsletter SWIFT, Mr Ali said everyone could become managers but not all could become leaders. "Leaders make tough decisions that are respected and accepted.

"I thank God Almighty and my team sincerely for the blessings, guidance and support which makes it so much easier for me in my leadership role.

"Let us continue to assist and support one another, as individual weaknesses can be overcome with our combined strengths," Mr Ali said.

Meanwhile, the authority has held a series of workshops and training sessions for its staff members and stakeholders in a bid to boost services and awareness.

According to the authority's SWIFT newsletter, a major performance indicator for the Standards and Compliance Unit was its code of practice for vehicle inspection.

The newsletter said the draft copy of the COP was completed following workshops around the country.

"Also in attendance were stakeholders from Dee Ace, Motor Management, Asco, Nirajans, Carpenters and Nivis," the authority's newsletter said.
