According to the World Health Organisation [WHO] India has a road traffic mortality of 16.6 per 100,000 people, placing it higher than Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. With 11% of deaths in India being the result of injuries, there is a clear need for first aid training in India.

Lazarus Training is based and registered as a first aid training company in the United Kingdom, but also provides first aid training in India. Able to deploy our staff to New Delhi and further, we can provide a wide range of our #trainforreal training courses in India and Asia.

First Aid at Work

First Aid in Remote Locations

First Aid in Hostile Locations

Hostile Environments training

Our training is always highly interactive and is adapted for each individual client group to ensure the training is relevant and reliable. The delegates are placed under stress within our safe training environment to help them prepare for the day when the emergency is real, hence our motto of #trainforreal

Safety training for staff of the UNODC field offices

With a high risk profile it might be time to consider safety training for staff of the UNODC field offices. Specifically face to face training covering topics such as first aid and medical care, alongside personal safety training.

Lazarus Training provides a wide range of first aid and safety training courses and is registered as a supplier on the United Nations General Marketplace [UNGM].

With a global presence via its field offices, UNODC staff are exposed to a wide range of risks, from those posed by the location to those posed by the work that you do. Road traffic collisions [RTC] can occur anywhere in the world, in Austria the rate of deaths due to RTCs is 5.4 per 100,000 people. In Thailand it is 36.2, Kenya 29.1, Senegal 27.2 and Tanzania 32.9.

In Afghanistan 18% of deaths are due to injury, in Colombia it is 17% and Tanzania 11%. These figures are for the general population, it doesn’t allow for the risk profile of staff from UNODC who are working to improve lives, by combating organised crime, trafficking, corruption and terrorism.

Experienced in working with large organisations and multinationals, Lazarus Training has a range of first aid, medical and safety training courses which would fit the need for safety training for staff of the UNODC field offices.

We have worked in many countries including: Afghanistan; Bosnia; Egypt; Ethiopia; Georgia; Kenya; Kyrgyzstan; Nigeria; Pakistan; Russia, Senegal; South Africa and Thailand.

Our training courses are designed for each learning group so that we can tailor the courses around localised needs, whilst still delivering international guidelines to a high standard across multiple locations.

Our courses work in a modular format and last from a few hours up to five days dependant on the finalised learning outcomes/content.

Most of our training courses feature scenarios, role playing events where the delegates can practice in a safe learning environment, but at the same time getting as close to real as possible. We summarise this in our #trainforreal ethos- you can read more about this here.

As you would expect from a training organisations with ISO 9001:2015 quality is at the heart of all we do. This is reflected in the planning that goes into our training events. We will share course timetables, scheme of work, sample lesson plans, scenario plans and assessment plans before the training.

Contents of an Individual First Aid Kit – aid worker version

When we run our medical training courses we are often asked “what should the contents of an individual first aid kit aid worker ‘s seem to ask this question a lot!

We understand the pressures we are all under when it comes to equipment. Budgets and then the practicalities of carrying the stuff around, on and off planes and across borders often informs our decisions on the contents of an individual first aid aid worker version.

So where do we begin? Something to carry it in I guess. You can buy all sorts of different first aid kit bags, but we have some favourites [pictured]  but it needs to be tough enough for your life and either needs to blatantly a first aid kit, or taking it in the opposite direct look like a camera bag or similar.

Contents of an individual first aid kit Aid Worker

So what goes in? We believe it’s best when an item has more than one use, but understand that sometimes this isn’t possible. For some of our media clients we even went as far as limiting the individualfirst aid kit to five items. We called it our desert island first aid kit [you need to be of a certain age to get that reference!], you might find some [poor quality] YouTube videos on our channel on this topic.

We have decided that we can squeeze in a few extra items for our aid work first aid kit, so here’s the headlines:

contents of an individual first aid kit aid workerTourniquet [our kits have a CAT-Combat Application Tourniquet]

Celox Gauze

Gauze [for wound packing]

Nasopharyngeal airway[s]

Nightingale Dressing

Olaes Dressing

Tuff cut shears

Sharpie Pen

SAM Splint

Tri-angular bandage

Space blanket [foil type]

Small role of gaffer tape/gorilla tape

There is normally some vinyl gloves, but the kit I picked up for this article was missing those, but that’s about it.

Now obviously we could add stuff, take some away, but most of the items here are easy to use [get some training to make sure you can use under pressure] and don’t have expiry dates, or they are long or it doesn’t really matter- I mean can a bandage expire?

So what’s it all for? If you have done a first aid or hostile environments courses [like our ones here] then it should all make sense, but hopefully the video below will make some sense of what the items are and why we have chosen them.

Recently when we ran some training for aid workers in Senegal we hit the problem that there was no budget to buy first aid kits, so we had to put out thinking caps on. If you would like to know what improvised and/or low cost first aid equipment we came up with drop me a line: alistair[at]lazarustraining.co.uk

We hope to post some more video content soon, for example a first aid kit on a budget.
