Emergencies like cardiac arrests and other life-threatening events can happen when you least expect it and change life as you know it instantly. In such cases, the presence of someone who has received first aid and CPR training might be the difference between life and death. Indeed, it is the skill you wish you had but hope you never need. But in case you do, you better hope you or someone close to you has it.
What does the Law say?
Every business is required by law to follow health and safety requirements outlined in the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981. This includes the provision of adequate and suitable equipment, facilities, and staff to guarantee that employees receive prompt medical assistance if they are injured or become unwell at work. So, employers must assess their workplaces to identify risks and hazards and adopt control measures such as first aid equipment, certified first aiders, and training for their employees.
Corporate first aid and CPR
An emergency can happen at any time, but who in the workplace is equipped to respond?
According to studies, prompt CPR can triple a heart attack victim’s chance of survival. Aside from that, first aid and CPR training teaches how to react and respond to emergency circumstances calmly. Employees with first aid and CPR training can better handle emergency situations and, just by acting correctly, save the lives of their coworkers.
