First aid trng eyed for fitness coaches
by PIO release

Health clubs and establishments, aerobics and slimmer’s salons or gyms, and similar groups and establishments will soon be mandated to have their trainers or instructors undergo trainings on first aid and related courses.

A proposed ordinance authored by Councilor Joel Alangsab stated that it shall be the policy of the local government to require slimming centers, gyms, health clubs, or physical fitness establishments in the city to require their trainers or instructors to undergo first aid training as a pre-requisite for hiring or continuous employment.

The proposal noted that a lot of slimming centers, fitness gyms, health clubs, and similar establishments are situated and are now operating in the city.

It noted that very few of the trainers, instructors, or aides employed by the establishments have undergone proper training on how to administer first aid or give temporary relief to clients who might suffer an injury, seizure, or cardiac arrest during a workout or strenuous physical activity.

The proposed ordinance added that the trainers or instructors are responsible for the safety of their students or clients during trainings or workouts, especially when accidents transpire, hence the need to undergo first aid training.

The measure added that the certificate of training issued by the Philippine Red Cross or any government agency concerned shall be displayed in a conspicuous place in the establishment.
