HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HCCI), in coordination with the National Productivity Organisation (NPO), conducted a fire safety workshop for industrial workers on Sunday. The workers were taught about the installation of necessary fire extinguishing equipment, alarms, exit doors, prevention of smoke inhalation and how to call emergency fire-fighting and medical help. HCCI vice-president Turab Ali Khwaja said the labourers lack the knowledge of how to save lives and rescue others if a fire breaks out. Meanwhile, NPO director Muazam Ali Ghumro said that his organisation is training industrial labour across the country in fire rescue measures.
