Batelco’s Health and Safety Department, has sponsored First Aid training for The Children’s House Montessori Nursery School staff, as part of the Company’s Community Outreach Programme. The group of management and staff from The Children’s House visited Batelco’s Hamala Headquarters to learn First Aid skills, with a particular emphasis on the needs of young children, in order to enhance their emergency procedures at the school.
The training was carried out by a professional trainer from the First Aid Box (FAB), the one-stop-shop for all first aid needs. Nine teachers and administration staff attended to benefit from the valuable experience and were issued with certificates at the end of the programme. The certificates have a three-year validity endorsed by Leven First Aid, UK.
FAB’s trainers are UK qualified Registered Nurses/Midwives and / or Paramedics with many years of knowledge and experience and attend regular professional development training. Their courses are delivered in a fun, relaxed and enjoyable way using up-to-date and hygienic equipment and include plenty of ‘hands on’ practice and real life scenarios.
Batelco Group General Manager Human Resources & Development, Shaikh Ahmed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa said that the Company’s Health & Safety Division provides a very crucial service with a comprehensive plan to deal with issues that may arise within Batelco’s premises in addition to its efforts that support the local community.
“The purpose of the first aid training is to empower the participants through exercises and knowledge to be able to handle all circumstances that might arise during a medical emergency,” he added.
