New Delhi: Transportation app Uber said it has partnered with Apollo Hospitals to train driver partners on handling situations like road accidents.
As a part of the partnership, a series of training videos on handling road accidents have been created that will help driver-partners handle such situations better, Uber said in a statement.
These training will be provided in English and one regional language.
In addition to the online training, doctors from Apollo Hospitals will also conduct two-week training sessions at the partner support centres in Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai over the next few weeks and certify driver partners who successfully complete the training.
“There are numerous instances of Uber driver-partners providing timely assistance to riders or road-accident victims. Uber is taking this beyond individual acts of goodwill,” Uber India Head of Public Policy Shweta Rajpal Kohli said.
