Ola teams up with Apollo to offer Lifesaver, a first-ever comprehensive medical program for driver partners

  • Ola, India’s most popular mobile app for transportation, has partnered with Apollo Hospitals to create India’s first ever comprehensive medical programme for driver-partners.
  • Under this programme, Ola drivers will be equipped to provide medical assistance in case of on-road emergencies. Driver partners will also be able to opt for a ‘My Apollo Card’.
  • Designed and modelled for Ola, the ‘Lifesaver Training’ programme will equip drivers to provide emergency medical response on-road post which they will be provided with a medical kit for their Ola vehicles.
  • The training session, will include training the drivers to provide first aid in case of trauma, arresting sudden chest pain or shortness of breath. They will also be trained in providing CPR along with cardiac arrest and stroke management by assisting with basic life support including chest compressions.
  • Apart from first aid, they will also be trained to transport patients to the nearest hospital or coordinate with an ambulance.
  • During the training, drivers will be taken through a free basic health check-up where their blood pressure, BMI and blood sugar will be tested. In addition, counselling sessions will be conducted to address specific issues. Post completion of training, drivers qualified as ‘Lifesavers’ will receive a certificate and a sticker for their Ola vehicles.
  • Earlier Ola had partnered with Apollo Hospital for its campaign on raising awareness about giving away to ambulances on the road called #Give Way Give Life.
  • Therefore from the above news we can conclude that Ola is providing medical benefits to the Ola drivers.
