First Aid training was given to all the staff and students at the Centre on the 27th of April 2018 and 11th of May 2018. The facilitators, Dr. Ayisi Boateng (Family Medicine, KNUST Hospital) and Dr. Joseph Bonney (Emergency Medicine Unit, KATH), took the participants through the most important prevention and emergency responses. The staff and students were trained to safely assess an emergency situation, to identify and interpret signs of life and to act well in cases of emergency. Participants were also trained on life saving measures such as chin lift, recovery positions and chest compression on mannequins and on themselves. Particularly important in a laboratory setting was the application of first aid measures on burns, cuts and chemical poisoning. Participants were also trained on how to Prevent emergency situations from occurring. For example by knowing the hazard symbols, proper storage of chemicals and to familiarize themselves with the material safety data sheet (MSDS) before handling a chemical. We are grateful to Dr. Ayisi Boateng and Dr. Joseph Bonney to have conducted this training at KCCR.
