Increasing its efforts at training school bus staff, Tata Motors today announced plans on furthering its unique School Bus Safety program called ‘Hamare Bus Ki Baat Hai’. Through this programme, Tata Motors will organise workshops to educate drivers and school bus staff on the safety of school bus travel.
After a successful pilot program across 25 schools in Mumbai, Tata Motors will now take the initiative to over 40 cities, including the five metros – New Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Kolkata. This programme is an interactive training session which has been designed with inputs from various stake holders, with the objective to sensitise school bus staff on the safety of school bus travel. Since its inception the program has helped in creating a sense of involvement among participants, increasing awareness about their duties and responsibilities, maintaining personal hygiene, general etiquette and behavior, and also taking necessary measures in case of accidents.
The Company will initiate another school bus safety program in the next financial year, titled ‘Safety Hamaare Bus Mein’. This program will be a mock drill session on fire and safe school bus travel for children.
