Abu Dhabi inaugurates first Safety Centre in Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City

ABU DHABI, 27th November, 2023 (WAM) — Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre, a subsidiary of the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi dedicated to enhancing the public and preventive health system in the Emirate, inaugurated the first-of-its-kind Safety Centre for injury prevention awareness in Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC).

The Safety Centre aims to educate all community members on the causes of injuries and effective prevention measures. Through an innovative and interactive experience, visitors will gain insights that foster enhanced learning and awareness, refining their skills in injury prevention topics, such as heat stress, occupational noise, and injuries affecting senior citizens, residents, and children in various settings.

Additionally, the centre emphasises the crucial role of personal protective equipment in maintaining safety.

Prevention of child road traffic injuries ranks high among the centre’s priorities. An effective measure to mitigate these incidents involves using child seats in vehicles. The centre offers live demonstrations on the correct installation of child seats, ensuring the safety of young passengers. After the experience, visitors participate in a brief questionnaire, contributing to periodic analyses that assess the centre’s impact on reducing community infections and enhancing overall awareness.

Matar Saeed Al Nuaimi, Director-General of ADPHC, said, “This project reflects the close collaboration between Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre and its strategic partners. Through this Safety Centre, we aim to increase awareness about ways to prevent and treat injuries early by providing training and education for all community members, including hospital visitors.

“As the primary facility for injury prevention in Abu Dhabi, we dedicate our efforts to developing various educational, training, and awareness programmes related to both work and the community.”

The opening ceremony was attended by the Director-General of the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre; Dr. Farida Al Hosani, Executive Director of the Infectious Diseases Sector at the Centre; Dr. Saleh Saif Al Ali, Executive Director of the Emergency Preparedness and Response Centre at DoH; Dr. Naser Ammash, Chief Executive Officer of SSMC; Dr. Marcelo Ribeiro, Head of the Department of Trauma, Critical Care, and Acute Care Surgery at SSMC; and Ahmed AlSayari, Head of the Department of General Surgery and Medical Director of the Trauma Programme at SSMC.
