First Aid & CPR Training at Penfibre Sdn. Berhad
In times of emergency, prompt and appropriate responses are essential to determine the future well-being and ultimate survival of any victim. First aid is the immediate assistance or treatment administer on someone who is injured or suddenly taken ill, before the arrival of ambulance or appropriate medical practitioner. Good “First aid” helps to preserve lives, limits worsening health conditions and promotes speedy recovery.
With this in mind, Penfibre (Fibre Division) recently conducted two sessions of “First Aid & CPR course” on 24th and 31st March 2015 for members of the Company’s Emergency Response Team (ERT). The trainings are aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills of these front rescuers to render appropriate first aid treatments during emergency situations.
Conducted by Malaysian Red Crescent (Bulan Sabit Merah Malaysia), the 1-Day training covers both theoretical and practical aspects of life-saving, including bandaging, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (commonly known as CPR) and physical examination. The knowledge shared by the qualified instructors and hands-on experiences have certainly benefit the ERT participants, in the Company’s continuous effort to keep the work places safe for everyone.
