Corporate Snake Safety Training.

On Thursday 22 February, staff from one of Zambia’s Mining Companies attended a corporate snake safety training, which consisted of snake awareness, identification, safety and snake venom toxinology and first aid in snakebite. 

During the training and at it’s end, venomous snakes handling demonstrations were given by Marcel, the trainer as well as by Gingré, the training assistant.  These demos serve to illustrate different snake behavioural traits and form a pleasant break in the lectures.
