CRISMACHEM awarded with the «Brain Protected Space» certification granted by Freno al ICTUS Foundation

– Marcelo Montoro –

We are proud to announce that CRISMACHEM has been certified as a “Brain Protected Space” by the Freno al Ictus Foundation for implementing, in 100% of its staff, online training that allows the identification, stabilization and action in the event of a stroke in  workplace or in family and social environment.

Stroke is the leading cause of death in women and the second in men. 1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime. It is the 1st cause of worldwide disability in adults.

The aim is to inform and train companies and employees to know what the risk factors and their prevention are, the alarm signals and the correct action to save time on the clock and be able to be of help to others, both in the work and personal environment.

“Brain Protected Space” certification  is part of the project “Brain Caring People Company”, which is the seal of recognition of the  Freno al Ictus Foundation framed within the actions of healthy company, occupational risk prevention, medical service, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development goals (SDGs) of organizations. The training content has been developed with the collaboration of the Spanish Society of Neurology (SEN) through its Group for the Study of Cerebrovascular Diseases (GEECV) and is backed up by the scientific society itself and has the support of the Spanish Association of Specialists in Occupational Medicine (AEEMT) and the Spanish Association of Occupational Prevention Services (AESPLA).

The project also includes the CRISMACHEM awareness campaign against stroke, which aims to make visible and inform society about this pathology, its prevention and the importance of time to act against it. The campaign consists of a set of informative materials that will be distributed through the different communication channels.
