The World First Aid Day is celebrated worldwide on second Saturday of September in every year. The International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) and Red Crescent Societies started to celebrate First Aid Day since the year 2000 and it is being continuously celebrated for the last 17 years. The aim of this day is to create awareness among people in order to save invaluable human lives in day – to – day and crisis situations.

‘It’s all about saving lives’

Considering the general nature of the organization IFRC, it works fundamentally to empower common people to act as volunteers and trains them to provide First Aid treatment. Secondly, this organization plays a remarkable role in the times of disaster and emergency situations. They provide very essential, life-saving First Aid techniques to sufferers while they are waiting for professional medical support. To be specific, they are saving millions of lives, i.e., around 160.7 million people are being served through their First Aid services and around 110 million people in disaster times in a year.

 ‘First Aid – it is for anybody at anywhere’

First aid is a very essential step towards saving the lives of sufferers before bringing them to medical Centers. It increases the chances of survival by immediate action and providing appropriate life-saving support. The purpose of First Aid treatment is to preserve life in the time of emergency, reduce the suffering due to injuries and applying relevant methods to promote recovery. First aid is not only about physical treatments due to injuries, it includes psycho-social support when a victim has been encountered a traumatic event.             

‘First Aid is a first safety tool to save lives’

First Aid Tips

  • If there is a bleeding, the injured spot must be gently pressed using a clean cloth for over 3-15 minutes non-stop. Then it must be cleaned by lukewarm water. If the bleeding occurs on nose, it should be pinched for 10 minutes and face must be leaned forward, strictly not backwards.
  • In cases of fire burns on any part of the body, cold running water must be poured onto the spot for over 10 -15 minutes.
  • If eyes are subjected to any wound, cold wet cloth can be used to cover the eyes. If eyes are splashed by any chemical, eyelids must be opened and cleaned by lukewarm water immediately.

First Aid in Workplace

It is very essential to appoint First Aiders in companies, which are involving in risky work processes and use toxic chemical substances. The First Aiders can immediately respond with emergency situations to save lives of people in cases of fire or any other injuries. Importantly, the First Aiders have to be formally certified once after obtaining a proper training. In order to satisfy this need, many safety providers are offering First Aid certification courses.

NIST is the major safety provider in India, which offers first Aid courses to corporates. We are proud to say that more than 500+ National and International First Aid certificates were provided to candidates so far.We strongly hope that our First Aid training provided to companies might have saved many lives of workers and helped the injured by immediate treatments.
