Traffic personnel are exposed to harsh weather conditions, dust, pollution, heat and cold. These can have an adverse effect on their health, the police said in a statement following the launch of a three-day health camp yesterday.
Everyday around 500 personnel will undergo various diagnostic tests at the camp. Yesterday, 516 personnel underwent lung-related and bone density tests among others, it said.
They were advised to wear pollution masks while performing duty, do 'pranayam' and breathing exercises, try meditation and eat healthy food.
