Red Cross first-aid training – Safety at Artisans Angkor

Red Cross first-aid training – Safety at Artisans Angkor

In August, two experts from the Cambodian Red Cross came to Artisans Angkor to train 22 of our employees (guides, sellers and chiefs of workshops) in first-aid gestures. Training began with an informal test to assess the participants’ current knowledge about first-aid. It then continued with the trainers explaining the behavior to adopt in case of emergency, such as heart failure or hemorrhage. The speech was followed by role-playing.

Artisans themselves play an important role in ensuring each other’s safety. Our “safety people” are most of the time chiefs of workshops; they are regularly trained in safety matters such as first-aid actions mentioned above and also in the use of fire-extinguishers.


This is made possible thanks to partnerships with the Cambodian Red Cross and the fire brigades of Siem Reap. Printed cards reminding first-aid gestures with texts and drawings are also available in every workshop.

One “safety person” is responsible for 20 employees, which makes the company in compliance European standards. His or her role is to complement the medical team by dealing with everyday incidents and emergencies.

First-aid boxes that are installed in every workshop are freely accessible under his or her control and their content is renewed every 15 days. Those boxes provide valuable assistance for general medical monitoring.
