To ensure the highest level of preparedness during medical emergencies and prioritise commuter safety, L&T-run Hyderabad Metro has implemented a major cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid training drive for the metro staffers.
In collaboration with OMC Cares – an Osmania Medical College initiative – Hyderabad Metro conducted as many as 26 training sessions, imparting the life-saving skills to over 2,000 staffers. Participants included station controllers, ticketing staff, security officials, housekeeping personnel, as well as senior officials from L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad Ltd and its operations & maintenance partner Keolis.
Covering a diverse range of critical scenarios, the training equipped the participants with essential skills on ways to handle situations involving tourniquets, seizures, trauma, unconsciousness, and snake bites.
The methodology was both informative and practical, with a mix of classroom instruction and hands-on demonstrations using mannequins.
