A consulting firm, Hydrochom Resources Limited in partnership with a Health and Safety Supplies company, Rely Supply Limited has trained over 50 caregivers and other school support staff on First Aid.
The 5-day First Aid and Emergency Response Programme took place from August 19-23, 2019, in Warri, Delta State.
In a release sent to Safety Record, the Lead Trainer and Certified CPR Instructor, Mrs Fayo Williams, noted that the current security situation in the country required training on dealing with emergency situations.
Williams, who is also a World Safety Organisation (WSO) SAFERR Ambassador with over 10 years of experience in safety, did a review on the course objectives and actions needed to be taken in emergency situations.
She noted that, “With the current security situation, management teams should ensure school teachers, drivers, security personnel and other school support staff are properly trained to handle emergency situations as a top priority”.
The ISPON-certified trainer further took classes on causes of unconsciousness.
The programme also featured a video using the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) before proceeding to wounds, bleeding and management of blood loss.
Associate Trainer, Atejiri Ovwigho-Ugbede, took Introduction to Resuscitation while a member of the Rely team, Desire Obanefe, spoke on the contents of the First Aid kit, importance of documentation, burns and legal issues.
The highlight of the programme was a demonstration of Fracture management and manual handling techniques which happened on the final day.
