Workers who are properly trained in CPR and AED use are empowered by law to act. Workplace training not only saves lives, it protects both employees and employers.
Hartford, CT (PRWEB) August 25, 2015
EMC CPR Safety Training, a premier provider of safety instruction, launched a new website to announce offerings in onsite CPR/AED workplace classes and AED sales throughout Connecticut, including expanded coverage areas of Hartford, New Haven, Stamford, Bridgeport, and Greenwich. Programs include CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automated external defibrillator) training, first aid training, and more. In addition, onsite AED assessment consultations are now available. The site can be viewed at http://www.connecticutcprtraining.com/.
The American Heart Association estimates that 70% of Americans don’t know how to correctly perform CPR. Also, 64% of Americans have never seen an AED -- which is a problem for both workers and employers.
“Workers who are properly trained in CPR and AED use are empowered by law to act,” said Stephanie Duehring, Owner and National Director of Training of EMC CPR & Safety Training. “Workplace training not only saves lives, it protects both employees and employers."
Thanks to Connecticut’s Good Samaritan Laws, as an employer, CPR training helps protect you and your business from potential lawsuits or other legal action. Workers that are trained and voluntarily issue CPR to coworkers, when acting in good faith, are not liable for damages, injuries, or death alleged to have occurred as a result of such emergency treatment. Which means as an employer, providing this training can both save lives and reduce your liability.
With customized courses, innovative teaching techniques, practical, hands-on elements and thorough training materials, EMC ensures the success of all workplace personnel. First Aid, CPR and AED operations are taught in straightforward, easy-to-understand components, so employees will feel confident and prepared.
Onsite training provides a flexible, easy approach to first response education - workers simply come into work to receive training. EMC makes the organization, implementation, and maintenance of a compliant AED program customizable and convenient for both employers and employees.
Providing CPR or other lifesaving measures in the workplace can seem intimidating, but if employees are thoroughly trained and have access to the necessary technology, they will be equipped to save lives.
