In line with the Occupational Safety and Health Act 2006, Uganda Red Cross Society has set up a state-of-the-art First Aid Training school to give more members of the general public an opportunity to undergo first aid trainings to save more lives. The OSH Act 2006 operationalizes Articles 40 (1) (a) of Uganda’s Constitution by making provision for health, safety and welfare for persons at workplaces. The URCS First Aid Training school which is located at our headquarters in Rubaga, Kampala District has a sitting capacity of 25 trainees per session to allow one-to-one interface between the trainers and trainees.
Isaac Kimbugwe, the focal person for first aid trainings at URCS said, “At the Uganda Red Cross First Aid Training school, we offer a cross section of Training courses ranging from First Aid skills, CPR, Basic ambulance courses and services, AED – Automated External Defibrillator (AED), Fire safety skills/ equipment handling training, Trainers of Trainees, Baby sitting and care for new mums and nannies and Road safety skills training. These internationally certified trainings cover individuals, families and organizations.”
Kimbugwe concluded by noting that all the 51 URCS branches located countrywide conduct similar first aid trainings and interested trainees can contact a branch closest to them to book their slot.
