Federal Road Safety Corps Staff Welfare
The federal road safety corps provides medical care and facilities to road accident victims and staff members. The Federal Road Safety Commission has provided a total of 20 roadside clinics, 12 zonal clinics and 1 clinic at the headquarters. There are 23 medical doctors, 121 nurses, 51 paramedics and 57 supporting staff who manage the clinic.
The Federal Road Safety commission provides housing benefits for staff members through the FRSC housing cooperative scheme that was inaugurated in March 2004. The concept of this scheme was born out of the burning desire to assist members who also contribute to the National Housing Fund to access the Federal Mortgage Bank Loan and become proud owners of their houses which they may retire to.
The objective of the scheme is;
- To procure, build, and allot empty lands to her members
- To manage the estates for serving and retiring/discharging service-personnel.
The Federal Road Safety Commission Cooperative society help members’ access loan, savings, and all buy goods at rate form trusted customers. An example of goods provided by the cooperative society on a subsidized rate to the member staff is the list of verified car brands for interested members.
Special Marshals welfare
Special marshals are covered by an insurance policy in case of death through road traffic accident. They are also protected by immunity provision in the Act. By this immunity clause, the special marshal is shielded from liability for any act validly done by him on the route to which he is assigned.
It is observed that the Federal Road Safety Corps officers’ salaries are calculated based on their ranks just like other government agencies like; The Nigerian Police, Navy, Air force, and The Nigerian Army.
It is also important to note that the salary structure given above is gotten from the Consolidated Para-Military Salary Structure (CONPASS).
