SIFAX Trains 101 staff For Leadership, Terminal Traffic
SIFAX Group has trained 101 staff from its subsidiaries in the first quarter of 2022 in fulfilment of its human capacity programme.
The training was focused on leadership competence, operations management, terminal traffic management, health, safety & environment, security, digital marketing and corporate governance.
The company’s Group Head, Corporate Communications, Muyiwa Akande explained that selected traffic managers from Ports and Cargo Handling Services (PCHS) were trained in terminal traffic management.
The one-week training was aimed at providing attendees with practical skills that would enable them effectively and efficiently coordinate the movement of people, vehicles and equipment within the terminal.
Operations staff from the same subsidiary were trained on current terminal operational skills, as well as an understanding of the importance of standards, robust processes and procedures and analysing the different elements of container terminal operations especially in understanding the full operational cycle of the ship, yard and gate activities.
Also, dockworkers were trained in industrial Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) management. The HSE training was aimed at setting standards, reinforcing the importance of health and security management at the workplace as well as equipping the training participants with relevant tools to conduct assessment, evaluation and control of potential hazards in the terminal.
Security staff from different subsidiaries also completed a 3-day basic security course that was designed to provide a critical understanding of their roles in achieving the company’s objectives.
The Group Head, Human Resources, SIFAX Group, Oluwakayode Alonge, expressed his delight at management’s commitment to the company’s human capital development through the provision of quality training and refresher courses that would improve staff’s skills and competence and ultimately contribute to the company’s business growth.
Chris Nnamuah, Learning & Development Manager, on his part, said the training was the product of the Development Needs Assessment conducted recently to identify skill gaps in the company’s workforce.
