Training Part of Batelco’s Community Outreach Programme

Batelco’s Health and Safety Section, has provided fire safety training for The Children’s House Montessori Nursery School, as part of the Company’s Community Outreach Programme. The group of management and staff visited Batelco’s Hamala Headquarters to learn about fire safety drills in order to enhance their emergency training procedures at the school.

Batelco Senior Manager Security, Safety & Strategic Operations Phillip Marais and Batelco Health & Safety Manager Sayed Ebrahim Al Hashimi conducted the valuable training for the group of management and staff from The Children’s House, to familiarize them with the various types of portable fire extinguishers and their use in treating the different types of fire that may occur.

The exercise at Batelco HQ was followed up with a fire drill at The Children’s House premises conducted by Batelco Health and Safety Division and Bahrain Civil Defense personnel. On the occasion staff and children were educated on the correct procedures for evacuating the school safely should the need arise, keeping in mind the special requirements needed when looking after very young children.
