What is Corporate CPR Training?
The idea that everyone should be CPR certified is nice in theory, but it’s more difficult to execute in reality.
Corporate CPR training is the solution, bringing certified CPR trainers right to your place of business, minimizing the amount of time employees spend commuting to/from an off-site CPR training class and reducing employee downtime.
Bringing certified CPR and AED training into your workplace:
Is more convenient
Saves money – particularly in the form of employee travel/meal reimbursement
Makes lessons more practical and comfortable, since students are in their “home” environment
Makes it easy to facilitate mandatory employee compliance
Corporate CPR Training Saves Lives
Just last year, respiratory therapist Cindy Keely – a native West Virginian – was sitting at her desk when she was frantically paged to a nearby conference room. A woman attending a cardiovascular care volunteer meeting had collapsed. Keely’s quick thinking enabled her to implement both hands-on CPR and AED training – saving the victim’s life.
Most workplace CPR classes incorporate AED (automated external defibrillator) training along with CPR. Together, these two certifications pack a powerful punch. OSHA writes, “Trials have shown that SCA survival rates doubled when CPR was combined with AED use, compared to CPR alone.”
Are you in compliance with local, state and federal mandates?
In a perfect world, CPR and AED certification would be a part of the educational norm. And, in fact, several states around the nation are implementing hands-on CPR training as part of their graduation requirements. Until that becomes a nationwide norm, most of us rely on professionals to hold this knowledge for the community.
Many industry and corporate regulatory requirements mandate that employees holding certain professional titles, or who hold certain job responsibilities, have some level of CPR and/or AED training or certification.
