Red Cross Society of China Train Beijing Employees in First Aid
On January 9th 2019, employees at the Dezan Shira & Associates, Beijing Office, celebrated the new year with the first ‘Employee Engagement’ activity of 2019.
How to Act in an Emergency
In this first session, volunteers from the Red Cross Society of China trained our staff to perform professional first aid. The training lasted two and a half hours and over 30 employees were introduced to practical treatments and procedures when facing medical emergencies.
The volunteers first presented the technique for bandaging different types of wound in case of any injury. The staff gained firsthand experience in bandaging and an introduction was given on the substitutes that may be found around the office in case of an emergency or a lack of medical supplies.
The Red Cross volunteers also familiarized the employees with the first aid treatment of any sudden onset illnesses such as coma, stroke or breathing obstructions.
Finally, standardized procedures for cardiac resuscitation and breathing methods were demonstrated for cardiac arrest treatment. Our staff also got the chance to practice and correct their circulation and posture with the example of a human model.
At the end of the training, many employees expressed their wiliness to join other health care training programs to improve their emergency response capability for the benefit of their families, friends, and their colleagues.
