Trainings and Awareness Sessions
Developing their capabilities and performance through targeted education and training.
In the purpose of being there for clients and colleagues especially in emergencies, Bank of Beirut took it to the next level. Sudden cardiac arrests may occur at any time among clients or employees, therefore Bank of Beirut installed AED’s in its main offices and equipped the Futsal Team with one for emergency use. And while they look for accuracy, a selected number of employees had a special dedicated training received a certificate from the American Heart Association as well.
These First Aid Training sessions enabled our colleagues to benefit from a unique opportunity, where they were taught to personally assist people around them and deliver first aid in the occurrence of any medical urgency that may arise until the Lebanese Red Cross have arrived to the scene, increasing the survival likelihood of the injured.
The program offers all kinds of medical services, which employees and their families can benefit from, such as free medical consultations, prescriptions renewal and blood collection at their convenience. Having a trustworthy medical team at hand has facilitated the lives of our employees, who now have less to worry about, and can have their medical appointments, diagnoses and medication faster and more accurate than ever.
Highly concerned young employees, aged below 40, attended the session as they were within the age group at risk of SCA, where valuable and life-saving information was shared, and free EKGs were offered to them.
