Risk Management Tip

Save a Colleague

Each year, sudden cardiac arrests are responsible for nearly 250,000 American deaths and 15% of workplace fatalities. Studies show that making automated external defibrillators (AEDs) available in public places, such as your workplace, can nearly double survival if people are trained on proper usage. AEDsĀ  are easy to operate for someone with no medical background, and their potential life-saving impacts make them well worth the cost.
