Shroff was speaking at the recently launched free First Aid and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Training Program organized at the CREDAI Pune Metro’s Auditorium at the Nucleus Mall, Camp.

Dr.Bhosale explained “It is important to be aware of safety while working on the sites. At the same time, it needs to be made sure that all the necessary tools and kits are available while doing first aid.” Also, required first aid techniques on electric shock and injuries, bleeding, accidents, and steps to be considered while giving Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) were imparted through demonstrations.


Shroff expressed his belief that this training program was specifically designed to address the potential hazards and emergencies that staff/workers may encounter on sites.
