The safety zones follow various procedures, including cab audits to ensure availability of safety equipment such as masks, hand sanitiser, and disinfectant liquid. Apart from noting down drivers' temperature, a health-status check via Aarogya Setu app is also performed there.

Drivers temperature is updated on the Ola platform so customers can see it in real-time. All vehicle interiors are thoroughly wiped down in front of the drivers to instill proper sanitisation process before every trip, Ola said.
