Shriram Transport Finance Company (STFC) has partnered with Skill India to train 1000 drivers to ensure seamless and accident-free transportation of oxygen tankers. Intending to streamline Liquid Medical Oxygen (LMO) tankers supply chain amidst the pandemic, Shriram Transport Finance Company has launched a CSR initiative- Shriram Seva Sankalp LMO Driver Training. The campaign aims to upskill 1000 experienced Heavy & Medium Vehicle drivers to carefully handle & transport Cryogenic LMO Tankers.
The Holistic Cryogenic Medical Oxygen Tanker Driver Training Programme will offer the trainees a deep-dive into the theory, hands-on practice on simulator, handling of Hazardous cargo tanker and in-plant LMO loading and unloading along with all other safety precautions to be taken. This will help in creating a pool of skilled drivers to transport cryogenic medical oxygen tankers owing to its growing significance in the medical management of COVID-19 across hospitals. Post the successful completion of the training program, the drivers will be awarded with a certification by Logistics Skill Council.
While over 500 drivers have completed their training in January 2022, the company aims to certify the remaining 500 drivers by March 2022. The shortlisting of experienced heavy motor vehicles (HMV) drivers to enroll for the capacity building training program was conducted at the approved Training Centers funded by Shriram Transport Finance Company Ltd. at multiple locations including Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.
