Following the sessions, we are positive that our staff are now able to offer vital assistance to our residents. This initiative was part of our overall commitment to always ensure the well-being of our tenants, visitors, and staff as well as meet the highest health and safety standards. Rest assured that Alfardan Properties will continuously hold similar events in the future to guarantee a safe and healthy environment across our residential communities.”

He specifically highlighted the basics of effective first aid that are crucial during medical situations such as heart attack, respiratory failure, burns, fractures, musculoskeletal injuries, poisoning, and heat stroke. The participants also learned comprehensive safety measures in a bid to prevent any untoward incident from happening in the company’s various residential communities.
