Purchase an AED for your company!

Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in America. According to OSHA, 10,000 of the 350,000 episodes of cardiac arrest each year occur in the workplace. Besides CPR training for your team, having an AED program at your workplace saves treatment time and increases the odds of survival. 

Your Emergent Safety Specialist can help you choose the right AED(s) for your facility, as well as assist your organization in the proper use of an AED.  Training can include teaching your workers to perform CPR and early defibrillation with an AED, while caring for the SCA victim until help arrives.
