FASTECH HOLDS OCCUPATIONAL FIRST AID AND CPR TRAINING

April 05, 2016

 

First AidFastech’s Environment and Safety Health Committee organized an occupational first aid and CPR training on March 30-31, 2016 at the Fastech Canteen VIP Lounge.

 

With the tagline, “Be a Hero, Save Lives. First Aid is for Everyone, Everywhere,” the training’s purpose is to educate department representatives on giving immediate response in case of emergency situations in the workplace.

 

The training was conducted by Emmalyn Añonuevo and Christian Rivera, accredited first aid and basic life support instructors from Red Cross Laguna Chapter. They used first aid modules designed specifically for industrial settings.

 

The two-day training was attended by a total of 20 employees from Fastech’s different departments. The participants received first aid kits, training materials, and a soft copy of the modules which they can use as reference materials and even share with others.

 

A lecture was given on the first day, focusing on first aid response for common illnesses and accidents. The attendees were also taught about the use of Automated External Defibrillator (AED), a computerized device attached to pulseless victim with adhesive pads. AED is used to deliver shock in situations where it is needed to treat a victim’s heart rhythm. The device gives visual and voice prompts to guide the rescuers.

 

A qualifying test was given on the second day of training. The examination covered written exam, actual CPR, basic lifting, and basic bandaging.

 

Other than the benefit of increased awareness and skills on emergency responses, all participants received certification as first aiders following the completion of the modules and passing of the examinations.

 

Fastech first sponsored the first aid training for employees in 2010 and the seminar has been held every two years since.
