First Aid training in India

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.

In the last year we have run a number of first aid training courses internationally and aim to increase this number during 2018/9.

Many of our most popular courses would be suitable for delivery in India and across Asia. With the wide range of industry and government agencies and non-governmental organisations in Uganda, it is likely our training can provide a first aid solution for Ugandan businesses or organisations and with our international oversight, many international businesses or agencies can be reassured by our training courses such as:

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

Courses are mapped to international standards and ensure that the delegates received only the best, empowering training to help them cope in safety and medical situations.

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.

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:

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.
