Investing in Defibrillators: The Smart Choice for Employers

According to the Resuscitation Council of the United Kingdom, 100 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the workplace each week. There are, in fact, 140,000 cardiac arrests in the UK each year.

Alarmingly, the council also reports that public access of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are used in less than 1 in 10 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. The use of public access defibrillators has been shown to significantly increase the chances of survival for individuals who suffer from OHCA.

In the event of sudden cardiac arrest, the use of a defibrillator can be the difference between life and death. Therefore, it is essential for employers to provide their employees with access to defibrillators in the workplace. Not only does this ensure a higher level of safety within the workplace, but it can also give employees peace of mind, knowing that they are working in a safe environment.

Employers are required to provide adequate and appropriate equipment and facilities for rendering first aid to employees in case of injury or illness while at work. This can be demonstrated through a first aid needs assessment that considers factors such as the size of the site, number of people on-site, and health and safety risks.

It is a smart choice for employers to have automated external defibrillators (AEDs) on site in case of the worst case scenario.
