The Transport Section of the Environment & Natural Resources Directorate has recently introduced uniforms to their workforce.
The new uniform includes black overalls & trousers and grey shirts & polo shirts along with yellow hi-vis clothing. The colours black and grey were chosen due to the nature of work that most staff perform. The uniform will allow the public to distinguish between SHG services, and can be identified by the section's new logo which depicts the outline of a car and spanner.
Senior Transport Manager, Nicholas George, commented:
The use of uniforms within the Transport Section has been planned for a while but only progressed late last year when a logo was decided on. As a service provider for SHG and the public, staff are required to enter various work places. With their new uniform staff can now be easily identified. Other sections such as Corporate IT, ANRD Veterinary and the Biosecurity teams wear a uniform which looks more professional and identifiable. I would therefore like to see other, if not all, directorates and sections introduce uniforms as part of SHG's progress towards branding.
In future, the Transport Section hopes to introduce ID and name badges to their workforce.
Located at Donkey Plain, the Transport Section is a service provider for St Helena Government (SHG) that collects specifications of required vehicles, sources and procures vehicles and equipment, rents vehicles to all SHG sections, maintains all SHG vehicles and equipment and provides or hires plant equipment to SHG and the public.
