Although accidents cannot be prevented entirely, how one reacts to the situation immediately can prevent them from becoming fatal. Ziqitza Health Care Limited (ZHL) realises that this is where first aid comes in as a life saver. Being trained in first aid can go a long way in helping one provide a patient with the right treatment at the right time, while minimising damages, making this an important skill to have at workplaces
The objective of ZHL’s first aid training module is to encourage workplace safety, which is often critical to saving lives. Considering the high levels of, when we demand so much skill, dedication, and hard-work from employees, certain safety measures and basic requirements urgently need to be provisioned for their benefits as well. One such indispensable skillset that each adult needs to be sensitised towards and equipped with is emergency safety.
There are various agencies and online courses that offer in-depth theoretical and practical orientation for individuals, regarding the ‘what’, ‘how’, ‘when’, ‘why’, and ‘which’ of emergencies. They are generally listed under the term ‘Health & Safety’ courses or ‘Occupational Health & Safety’ modules that focus on competence in the practical application of the same. Thus, it not only is often critical to individuals know how to help themselves and others during an unforeseen emergency, but also keeps the panic in control, since employees today are made aware of the steps that need to be taken in order to minimise the harm or damage caused. It helps ingrain a responsible health and safety practice as well as ensures risk assessments to promote a healthy and safe working culture.
ZHL offers the best in emergency medical care, and also believes in empowering ordinary citizens to respond appropriately to emergency situations. Ziqitza Health Care offers a range of First Responder Programs (FRP) to help train ordinary citizens to respond to medical emergencies effectively with First Aid and Basic Life Support techniques.
A first responder is the one who identifies an emergency and takes the necessary and correct steps to stabilise the situation within the Golden Hour itself. A First Responder has to know simple life-saving techniques that any common mann can perform with minimal equipment at hand, in order to provide aid in emergencies, till more advanced care is made available to the patient in need. On recognising an emergency, the first responder activates the ERS. Post this, they provide immediate assistance to a patient with a sudden illness, or injury before being taken to a health unit for further management. Every employee must know the basics of first aid in the event of an emergency at the workplace. To know more about how to save a life, book an FRP now.
An injury or emergency situation not tended to immediately can have drastic consequences. The administration of first aid depends on the gravity of the situation. It may be as minor as applying ointment or sealing a wound with a bandage, or as major as performing CPR to save a life. In serious cases, First Aid should only be administered by those who have received training and are qualified to do so.
On an average, any individual has a time frame of 3-4 minutes before effectively administering first aid, especially in major cases. Therefore it is important to act swiftly and be smart. The main goal is to keep the patient alive till professional help arrives.
