The staff at Orkide Villa in Cambodia have learnt how to respond to a medical emergency.
21 staff from the company’s Phnom Penh office participated in SMCS RISK’s Basic First Aid with CPR training course on the weekend.
Spread into 2 training courses over 2 days, the 21 staff learnt how to identify a medical condition, respond to a medical emergency and how to administer first aid including using CPR techniques.
The training gives Orkide Villa staff a better understanding on how to respond to a medical emergency involving not only their colleagues and people visiting Orkide Villa buildings, but the staff can feel comfortable that if one of their loved ones has a medical emergency at home, they will be able to confidently provide a much better initial response.
“It’s baffling to me as to why every person in Cambodia doesnt undertake a first aid training course. If you are happy to put your life or the life of your loved ones in the hands of one of Cambodia’s Ambulance staff, then I wish you the best of luck, because the reality is, a speedy and professional response to your medical emergency may not always occur in Cambodia.” said Steve Morrish, CEO of SMCS GROUP.
The difference between life and death during a medical emergency is often influenced by the timely initial response provided by first responders – do you know how to respond if something happened right now?
