Who are you?
Camilla Mäkinen, founder, CEO and also one of the First Aid Trainers in Camilla Safety.

What is your company specialized in?
We are specialized in trainings that improve and maintain good safety on workplaces. We have courses in First Aid, Firefighting and Threat Situations. All our instructors have worked or are still working as paramedics, firefighters or policemen. We use modern technology and the courses are very hands-on. The duration of the courses vary from 2h to 16h.

Tell us about your clients and other key shareholders?
Our clients are companies in the Turku-Pori-Tampere-Helsinki-area. Several of the companies operate at different levels in the maritime industry. Occupational First Aid trainings are mandatory according to Finnish law and, therefore, both small and large companies use our services. Courses are mainly held in the customers’ own facilities where we are able train in genuine locations. We also have our own training room in Piispanristi (Turku) and can arrange for other spaces as well depending on what our clients need.

What services or products do you offer to other YardMate members?
We offer YardMate members all above mentioned trainings (first aid, firefighting and threat situations), AEDs (defibrillators) and first aid equipment. As a YardMate member you get -10% off all course prises and, in addition to this, you get to free of charge use our resuscitation simulator and try a crash experience using our VR-glasses during a First Aid course. To book a course or for more information, call Camilla at +358 50 5898 079 or e-mail

What are your expectations for YardMate?
We hope YardMate member companies will be interested in improving the safety of their employees. If you want a modern and inspirational safety course, don’t hesitate to call us. We have the possibility to train a large amount of groups and have already provided several trainings to YardMate members.

And your needs regarding sub-contractors and partners?
We could do with 1-2 firefighters more in our team to do 2h trainings every now and then. If you have a good contact, call Camilla at +358 50 5898 079.

Anything else you wish to say to us?
If you have done a first aid course but it wasn’t a wow-experience, call Camilla Safety. Remember, you may one day be the first, most important and maybe the only bystander in an accident or medical fit. Learn how to help. Together we can save lives!

You do a fantastic work, Camilla! The wow-experience really is present in your First Aid trainings, which means one remembers more easily how to act in an accident situation. For any reader to get a first glimpse on Camilla’s hands-on advice, check Camilla Mäkinen at LinkedIn.
