Recently, several staff members from GIS sat the Highfield Level 2 International Award in ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’, offered by by Atlas Risk and Consulting Solutions Ltd. The Managing Director at Atlas? None other than our very own alumnus, Clement Chew (Class of 2007)!
This is not the first time Clement has run safety-focused events for GIS – he delivered a safety talk on ‘Staying Safe in Malaysia’ for our PTF members a while ago. We are grateful to Clement for his commitment to ‘giving back’ to our school community by running these trainings and events for us!
What is the First Aid Qualification all about?
The Level 2 International Award in Emergency First Aid at Work is a qualification aimed at providing learners with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to support emergency first aid in the workplace. It is recognised internationally by multiple organisations and governments around the world and is seen as the gold standard in first aid.

More About Clement Chew
Prior to starting up Atlas, Clement held position within the Malaysian Federal Government, with the portfolio of reducing crime and transforming the police service between 2013 and 2016.
In Clement’s own words during his recent BFM 89.9 interview: ‘Nothing’s going to stop me from making Atlas the go-to institution for CP and security related training as well as direct deployments to the ASEAN region. It’s been tough over the past 2 years – but the main lesson that I’ve learned in this journey is to trust your heart, and stand up for what is right for yourself and your people.’
‘I spent 2 of the best years of my life in Garden – I would not be where I am now without the guidance and the mentorship of the teachers, some of whom are still there teaching! The access to so many different cultures and backgrounds enables students to develop their social skills early in life, which is essential for success in life.’
We thank Clement for all that he is doing for society – and for our GIS community! – and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
