Workplace Safety, AEDs and CPR

Medtronic AED from AED One-Stop Shop

As 2015 comes to an end and 2106 begins, it’s a great time to look at your workplace and evaluate wellness, health, and safety.  We know the statistics about the incredible cost of not retaining our employees when we look at recruiting, hiring and training of new ones.  It behooves the business owner or general manager to ensure they are doing everything they can to create a wonderful working environment.

As we approach the New Year it is important to evaluate current workplace safety initiatives and the ways to improve in this area.  An often overlooked initiative tackles the workplace’s surprising top killer which is sudden cardiac arrest.  For many years workplaces and business simply relied upon calling 911 and were at the complete mercy of EMS.  These days companies are investing in small, easy-to-use public defibrillators and CPR training and are thus creating “heart safe” environments for the employees, customers and visitors. What is an AED machine?

The public defibrillators described above are also known as Automated External Defibrillators or AEDs.  Believe it or not an ordinary personal could easily save the life of a cardiac arrest victim by using the simple automated device.  An AED uses voice and visual prompts to guide the rescuer to remove clothing from the chest, place the two electrode pads appropriately and then deliver a life-saving defibrillation shock if necessary.  Public Defibrillators are safe in that they only deliver therapy if a shock is needed and they even guide rescuers through delivery of CPR compressions.  How to use an AED.

AEDs are needed in corporate workplaces, small businesses, schools, churches, gyms, government offices and certainly public places.  AED One-Stop Shop is a leading provider of the remarkable life-saving devices and we provide CPR/AED training too.  For those needing funding there are programs in place.  AED One-Stop Shop does business in all 50 States and we utilize a consultative approach to help select and provide the ideal AED brand, model and accessories.  Call 855-677-AEDs or email with any questions you have or for a quote at a discounted price.
