First Aid-CPR-AED Training
First aid often means a bandage on a cut or scrape. Knowing first aid is most important when it is a more serious injury. First aid training and learning cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), as well as knowledge of an Automated External Defribulator (AED) are so important. Knowing the proper steps to take in an emergency can help save a life. Some key facts about first aid and CPR certification include:
- 25% of all emergency room visits can be avoided with basic first aid and CPR certification
- Sudden cardiac arrest represents 13% of all workplace deaths
- Nearly 5 million workers were injured on the job in 2012, costing companies $198.2 billion
- 75% of all out-of-hospital heart attacks happen at home
