The im­por­tance of first aids was also discussed dur­ing the work­shop and how cru­cial it is to be un­der­stood well as part of our life, in ad­di­tion to as­pects of first aid per­son­nels. The work­shop also fo­cused on dis­cussing the types of first aids and deal­ing with emer­gency sit­u­a­tions, cuts, bleed­ing, types of stom­ach aches for both adults and in­fants, for­eign ob­jects in the body, con­stant bleed­ing and check­ing the pulse.

Fur­ther, the par­tic­i­pants took a part in demon­strat­ing and ap­ply­ing what they learnt. The work­shop was held to spread aware­ness through­out the univer­sity and to pro­vide the emer­gency skills that the staff mem­bers must have to main­tain a safe en­vi­ron­ment.
