Competency Based Training (CBT) Approach
We do not solely train our participants on theory (Knowledge), at the same time we also emphasize on practical (Skill), and most importantly, we promote the true value of Good Samaritan Law and motivate the participants to render help voluntarily without any hesitation.
In other words, we believe in Skills, Knowledge AND Attitude
Having completed the course, participants will be awarded with Certificate of Training which are both nationally and internationally recognized.
Delivery of Certificate
Certificate will be delivered to the client’s correspondence address within 21 working days after completion of the course. Special arrangement for fast delivery can be made upon request.
Without retraining, knowledge might be forgotten while skills may deteriorate rapidly when not being used / practiced. Therefore, yearly retraining is very much recommended.
The Training Highlights
This course provides the BEST solution for anyone who wants to help in an emergency but can’t afford to attend the competency program in full, due to any reason (time consuming, language barrier, not interested to sit in the exam, cost, etc).
This course is simply designed based on a rationale that everyone should be able to perform the most basic of first aid, at least to be prepared in the event of emergency involving themselves or their loved ones.
Why First Aid and CPR? It is an Essential Safety Training at your workplace:
“First Aid” is the assessment and intervention that can be performed by a first aider during an emergency with minimal equipment until appropriate medical personnel arrives. The life of an injured or ill worker/member of the public within the vicinity of the workplace may depend on proper first aid care given within the first few minutes of an accident or illness. Besides saving lives, first aid treatment is important in preventing further complications resulting from injury and pain and promoting recovery. First aid knowledge is also important for management of minor injuries such as burns, sprains, cuts, etc.
The Legal Provision:
An employer has a duty to provide information, instructions, training and supervision about First Aid facilities and services for employees.
The Factories and Machinery Act 1967 (FMA):
Section 25 of the Factories and Machinery Act 1967 (Act 139) and regulation 38 of the Factories and Machinery (Safety, Health and Welfare) Regulation 1970 state the scope of responsibility of an occupier with regards to first aid provision. The scope includes:
i) Providing and maintaining a first aid box or cupboard of such standard as may be prescribed and ensuring the box is readily accessible at all times.
ii) Assigning the responsibility to upkeep a first aid or cupboard to a responsible person, and for a factory with more than 20 person employed, specifying that the responsible person should be proficient in first aid treatment.
iii) Providing and maintaining a first aid room in a factory where more than 150 person are employed.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 (OSHA):
Section (15) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 (Act 514) provides that every employer and the self-employed person must ensure, so far as is practicable, the safety, health and welfare at work of all his employees. The provision of first aid facilities and first aiders is incompliance with the welfare component of this general duty of employers and self-employed persons.
