The HSE Department Superintendent, U Tun Myint, with Operations Manager, Mr. Wallis, welcome the Red Cross Society to MYTCL.
MYTCL has opened its 16th batch of first aid training at the Myayadana Hall of Mine Town school on the 23 October, 2017.
This is one of the community programs under the guidance of the Myanmar Red Cross Society that MYTCL invites innto the organisation on an annual basis. This training is one of the most critical of all training, in order to give employees the ability to perform first aid in their workplace.
U Tun Myint presented a speech in Myanmar language prepared by Mr. Wallis.
"At MYTCL we always state that Safety is our first priority.
Today we take another step towards maintaining that goal. On behalf of the Managing Director and Chairman Mr. Zhang Yupeng, as well as on behalf of our Environment, Safety and Security Director - Operations Manager Mr. Glenn Wallis, we warmly welcome into our lives the District Red Cross Team once again with their Leader U Htu Ra Tun, and the District Chairman U Tin Aung.
As managers and employees, expats and contractors, visitors and trainees all mingle amongst each other on a day to day basis on our mine site, the opportunity for incidents, or accidents to occur greatly increases. The leadership of our company judges the safety of our employees on the foundations of a risk-based approach. Addressing and understanding risk of all nature is the most critical factor that we apply, and knowing that risk is the element of unexpected results drives our company to constantly train, re-train and to improve our training efforts to ensure the safety of all our stakeholders. I encourage all of you to take this opportunity to focus on one thing, and one thing only; risk is uncertainty. Our mining environment is a dangerous and hazardous place. You just never know if, or when you will ever need the training that you have. I assure you that the first aide training that will be taught here today give you the tools to safe your colleague's life, a family member, a stranger, or even you own. So cherish what you learn here today.
Your safety is our first priority – take care of each other."
The training was provided by attending a course, and gives the way to help adults and children during many emergency situations. Attendance at regular refresher course or re-certification is often necessary because of the Red Cross' updated clinical knowledge. 58 employees for all departments in MYTCL attended the first aid training for 5 days. The Trainers are from Yimarbin/Kani Red Cross Society under the supervision of Yimarbin District Red Cross Committee.
