Are you protecting your greatest assets?
More than half of British Businesses do not have a defibrillator.
13% of workplace fatalities are a result of sudden cardiac arrest.
We all spend a great deal of time in the workplace and sudden cardiac arrest can strike anyone at anytime. The impact of losing a colleague has wide reaching consequences. It is crucial to act quickly when someone is fighting for their life. You can do no harm with an iPAD SP1 AED and it really can be used by anyone .
Staff & the community In safe hands
Rob Underwood, Redditch Heart Safe
It means a lot to us. There have been fatalities and we cannot keep letting this go on.
This is an important addition to us. The profile of our main customers that we train here on our premises means that they may be at increased risk of sudden cardiac arrest. We have had a scare and do not want to wait until it is too late
Robin Lambert, Rotherham Markets Manager
The traders at Rotherham Markets value their loyal customers very highly which is why, when such a serious incident occurred and two of our traders acted so heroically, everybody pulled together to make sure that, in the future, the market would have the very latest first aid equipment on hand to ensure the safety of its customers.
Dawn Clements, Asda Head of Community
We’re really proud of our investment of over £500,000 in providing life-saving defibrillators for all of the communities we operate in. It can take a number of minutes for an ambulance to reach one of our stores in response to an emergency like a cardiac arrest. The commitment we’re making today could significantly cut the amount of time a cardiac arrest sufferer has to wait for life-saving CPRand defibrillation, giving them the best possible chance of survival.
Anna Bard, The Fostercare Co-Operative
We are delighted to have a defibrillator installed and look forward to the training session for our staff later this month. It will be very reassuring to know this equipment is available both for ourselves and for local businesses.
Dick Tracey, Divisional Responder Manager, SCAS
There is no question – it will save additional lives. Sudden cardiac arrest is the UK’s single biggest killer and when somebody goes into this horrendous medical condition the chances of successful resuscitation reduces by 10 per cent per minute. CPR can buy time but the definitive treatment for this is a shock from a defibrillator.
Dr Rubin Minhas, Nuffield Health Group Medical & Scientific Director
These machines are easy to use and they save lives. Our investment in these devices, which will help us to further protect staff & members alike, is invaluable & a sign of ensuring our members feel as safe as possible whilst they enjoy the benefits of being more active
Health & Safety Manager
My staff are my most important assets. Our defibrillator is right beside our fire extinguisher so that it is very accessible if is was needed. The iPAD is so intuitive and simple to use which is a critical factor for us.
Tina Blazdell, Office Manager
We are acutely aware of the importance of having access to defibrillators. We all spend a great deal of time at work & sudden cardiac arrest can strike at any time. It was important to us to have a defibrillator that is incredibly easy to use so that any member of staff would be able to use it if ever it was needed.
