Uber Trains Driver-Partners, Others

As a way of improving safety and security on trips, leading transportation network company, Uber trained a large number of its driver-partners registered on the Uber app in Lagos recently. With the recent training programme, Uber created a forum whereby driver-partners had the opportunity of engaging with law enforcement officials, health and safety organizations, and members of the local Uber team at a workshop geared towards improving safety and security on trips.

The sessions highlighted different topics like where to obtain original vehicle registration details, how to minimize risks and prevent potential accidents while driving, improving wellbeing and stress management for driver-partners, and a thorough run-through of Uber’s in-app safety features. Speaking shortly before the training programme, Lola Kassim, general manager West Africa, Uber said the transport firm is committed to safety and are always working to build a better experience for driver-partners.

“It made sense for us to collaborate with relevant safety and security experts, and organizations like AXA Mansard to organize a workshop that provides driver-partners with relevant and useful safety tips. The driver safety tips are designed to help driverpartners feel empowered to be safe and help them make safe decisions before, during, and after every ride”, Kassim added. Speaking on the safety workshop, O’Yoma Ukueku; Greenlight Operations Manager for West Africa said:

“At Uber, we’re constantly working to help make cities safer, and that includes listening to those who protect and serve our communities every day. The workshop was designed to give driver-partners access to knowledge and information facilitated by subject matter experts on a wide variety of subjects that are critical to safety while on trips. As safety is a critical pillar to us at Uber, we are striving to ensure that driver partners have access to information that improves the quality and safety of rides.”
