Does Your Employer Offer First Aid/CPR and AED Training?

Recently I came upon a survey and its companion report, sponsored by the American Heart Association. I thought it important enough to share.

This survey sought to understand how organizations are approaching First Aid, CPR and AED training. Unfortunately, most U.S. employees are not prepared to handle cardiac emergencies in the workplace because they lack training in CPR and first aid according to the new survey results.

In this survey, 1,052 Environmental Health and Safety Professionals interacted with 636 EHS Professionals completing it. Some key information collected included the following:

·         78% of respondents stated that it is very important for their employees to be trained in first aid/CPR/AED training.

·         The top reason for offering first aid/CPR/AED training was their commitment to employee safety.

.         The survey stated that more than 50% of employees take first aid/CPR/AED training seriously.

.         33% of respondents said that lives were saved in the workplace because of the training. 




Also interesting is that nearly one-third third of respondents (30.3%) indicated that they did know of lives having been saved outside of the workplace because of proper first aid/CPR/AED training. Nearly half of survey participants (47.8%) knew of situations outside the workplace where injuries or medical conditions were successfully treated. These numbers prove that this type of training helps save lives.

Here at MCR Medical all employees must be certified in first aid/CPR/AED and I feel confident that we would know what to do instinctively in case of an emergency. Shouldn’t you and your employees feel the same way?

You can find more information on this report and workforce training on the American Heart Association’s website.
