More Americans are returning to in-person work settings, and this transition will have its own set of challenges. For example, businesses will need to continue to adapt policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But it’s also important to evaluate and improve upon existing safety programs.
If your business or workplace is returning to the office, now is a great time to go over your CPR, AED and First Aid safety procedures.
Why emergency care training is important for businesses
CPR, AED and First Aid training equips employees with lifesaving skills that can be used on the job or at home. Whether an employee experiences sudden cardiac arrest, severe bleeding or a workplace injury, training empowers employees to take control of the situation and provide essential care before EMS arrives.
Emergency care training has the added benefit of reducing workplace emergencies and injuries. Scenario-based CPR, AED and First Aid training promotes learning and retention that helps employees identify potential hazards and become more aware of their surroundings.
Here’s a video from an HSI Instructor who saw the benefits of having emergency care training at her own workplace, detailing two lives that were saved thanks to the training.
