The National Safety Council offers a selection of life-saving AEDs, response equipment, CPR manikins and more.
About 13% of workplace fatalities reported to OSHA are caused by sudden cardiac arrest. Reports also show that organizations with an AED program have used their AED at least once to save a life. Having an AED at your worksite could mean the difference between life and death.
● The sooner a defibrillation shock is administered, the greater the chance for full recovery
● Survival rates are as high as 45% if defibrillation is provided within five to seven minutes
● Few successful resuscitations happen after 10 minutes
It’s not always easy to tell if a victim is in cardiac arrest, especially for a layperson. Fortunately, innovative AED technology ensures a shock is delivered only when necessary.
NSC is pleased to partner with leading AED manufacturers HeartSine, Cardiac Science and Philips to provide you with a full line of AEDs and AED supplies. In addition, we offer a full line of first aid supplies you need for training classes, such as manikins, CPR face shields, EpiPen trainers and training packets.
Knowing the appropriate actions to take before paramedics arrive is crucial to saving a person in cardiac arrest. NSC courses can provide the training your employees need to respond to a cardiac emergency.
Paramedics can take eight to 12 minutes to arrive, but someone suffering sudden cardiac arrest needs help immediately. A bystander with access to an AED can greatly improve the chance of survival.
