First aid training – BLS (adults)

Prevention and safety at workFirst aid training – BLS (adults)

Every day, regardless of the occupation and the nature of work, everybody may find themselves in a situation where they need to provide first aid to the injured.

For years, Medicover has been taking part in initiatives promoting health prevention programmes and projects that increase safety of life and health.

Your colleague worked for eight hours at the computer. Suddenly, he started complaining: he had difficulty breathing and he was in cold sweat. He went to the common room and then fell on the floor. Everyone was standing around him, waiting for an ambulance, but nobody came up. It turned out that no one could administer first aid... There is an opening for his job now – he could not be saved.

Do we have the legal and moral obligation to provide first aid in times of the coronavirus pandemic?

Definitely yes.

Should we be afraid of being infected with coronavirus when we administer first aid? Definitely not! 

If you do not want this to happen in your office, teach your employees today how to help others in life threatening situations. Be prepared and be safe.

The basic training for adults is the best way to start as a first aider. It enables to acquire basic skills related to the measures and steps taken in most emergencies when in contact with the injured.

If this training is carried out at your company, it will have a positive impact on your employees’ safety.

The training is provided online. It is engaging thanks to the experience of the trainers and the use of effective communication platforms. Participants do not get bored, but effectively assimilate first aid knowledge. What will training participants learn?
