Deliveroo riders to be trained in first aid by Singapore Red Cross
On April 11, Deliveroo, which has 6,000 riders here, sent the first batch of 20 riders for the course.
The two-hour essential first aid with cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator session covered important aspects on emergencies involving bleeding, choking or unresponsiveness in adults.
Mr Siddharth Shanker, general manager of Deliveroo Singapore, said equipping the riders with such essential skills has the potential to make a huge difference in local communities.
He said: "They go above and beyond to deliver Singaporeans' favourite food, and we wanted to empower our riders with the necessary skills and confidence to step in and make a difference in the instance when members of the public need help the most."
