Dear Health and Safety Officer:
Ever wake up in the middle of the night heart pounding with that all-too-familiar feeling that
youve left something undone at work? Most people experience that cold, sinking feeling once in
a while, but your worries are different. You dont just worry about deliveries and late deadlines
you worry about people. Protecting their health. Minimizing harm. With your job, someones
life could be at stake, and the preparations youve made in your workplace could mean the difference
between life and death.
A Technological Advance You Cant Live Without
Over l,000 hearts will stop today. And many of the victims will be sitting right at their desks.
Tragically, most will die without timely intervention. But the odds are about to change in their favor.
More and more states and corporations are recognizing the lifesaving benefits of Automated
External Defibrillators (AEDs) as a lifeline in the workplace. This new generation of defibrillators is
easy to use by non-medical personnel and can improve the survival rate dramatically in an emergency
situation where every second counts
