Business owners understand the need for a safe working environment for their employees, though many have yet to invest in a defibrillator.
Defibrillators are pieces of life-saving equipment that are vital in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in your workplace. With anyone at risk, regardless of their age or lifestyle, it’s important that your staff know how to handle this medical emergency.
Anyone can use a defibrillator, but training can help you and your staff to act quickly and efficiently should anyone need a defibrillator on your work premises. With the average ambulance response time for a cardiac event at 11 minutes, you will be required to care for the victim until a medical professional can take over.
With the average cost of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) standing at roughly £1,000 and with many leasing options available, this is a small price to pay to save a life.
Every minute is vital to the survival rate of a SCA victim, so it’s important to have an AED close to hand and have an understanding of how it works. Whilst every AED comes with either verbal instruction or clear pictures to guide you through the process, it’s important that you feel confident in your ability to use one when prompted.
