CAHO and CHOLA MS RISK SERVICES Ltd. join hands to launch a certification program for hospitals on Fire Safety.
The Consortium of accredited health care organizations (CAHO) and Cholamandalam MS Risk Services Ltd recently signed a memorandum of understanding to provide a state of the art Certification program on Fire Safety and Emergency Preparedness to accredited health care organizations in India.
The program will address much of the lacunae in knowledge and systems that hospitals face today in the areas of fire prevention, protection and preparedness. The program is expected to reach around 40,000 accredited hospitals in India in the next eighteen months. Critical concepts will be taught through use of simulations and innovative use of Virtual Reality Technology. Participants successfully completing these programs will be issued a joint certificate from both organizations.
Cholamandalam MS Risk Services Limited is part of the INR 300 Billion Murugappa Group, and a 50:50 joint venture with the Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Group, Japan, offering comprehensive risk management and engineering solutions. With two decades of experience and over 8500 consulting projects across 42 industrial sectors, the company offers best-in-class services to organizations to optimize their EHS performance and set new benchmarks in safety performance.
The Consortium of Accredited Healthcare Organizations (CAHO) is a not-for-profit society. The primary objective of CAHO is to promote collaboration among accredited hospitals and laboratories to initiate efforts to improve healthcare quality in India.
