Title Technical training of staff for first aid
Bibliographic information May 1984, Vol.33, No.2, p.18-21. Illus. 2 ref.
Abstract A life-guard system in the workplace must be well prepared and effective to deal with accidents or sudden illnesses. An attempt at technical training of leaders of workers for first aid was undertaken by the health control section of a steel company. It was a 2-day course: 1st day - lectures with "The Guideline for First Aid" by the Japan Medical Association used as a text book; 2nd day - demonstration and training (including mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and external heart massage) utilising a mannequin (ResusciAnne/Torso, Norway). The results are not dramatic so far; periodical follow-up first aid training in the workplace is recommended.
