In the event of a workplace emergency, who on your team is prepared to take control of the situation until help arrives? Do they have the proper skills and training required to jump into action quickly and effectively?
Many ERTs, Medical Emergency Response Teams, and Corporate First Responders comprise employees who volunteer to help in the event of an emergency. With average EMS response time in the U.S. estimated at between 8 and 10 minutes, many medical emergencies, such as cardiac arrest, are not survivable without corporate responder intervention. OSHA requires businesses that are more than 4 minutes away from professional medical care to have CPR & First Aid trained employees on staff during all operating shifts.
Emergency Response Teams without sufficient knowledge and skills to handle medical emergencies can put a workplace at risk. Mitigate that risk by providing your in-house ERT with the training they need to handle virtually any medical emergency that can arise in the workplace.
