The National Safety Council offers a selection of lifesaving AEDs, response equipment, CPR manikins and more.
About 13% of workplace fatalities reported to OSHA are caused by sudden cardiac arrest, and 34% of organizations with an AED program have used their AED at least once to save a life.
Nearly 60% of all cardiac arrests are witnessed. This means that someone is nearby to help.
NSC is pleased to partner with two leading AED manufacturers — HeartSine and Philips— to provide you with a full line of AEDs and AED supplies.
AEDs are designed to be used by laypeople. It's not always easy to tell if a victim is in cardiac arrest, but innovative AED technology ensures a shock only will be administered when necessary.
Knowing the appropriate action to take before paramedics arrive is crucial to saving a person in cardiac arrest. NSC courses are an excellent choice, whether you have a large company to train or just a handful of employees.
NSC has the tools you need for your training classes, including:
NSC offers AEDs, AED training equipment, instructor kits, workbooks and more - everything needed to ensure your employees have the skills necessary to act in a medical 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.
