Why Should Your Business Have a Defibrillator?
Some of the main reasons you should consider purchasing a defibrillator for your business include:
1. Defibrillators Save Lives
If an employee or customer suffers a sudden heart attack, a defibrillator can help revive them and save their life. No business or employer would like to have a fatality on their premises and investing in a defibrillator can help prevent that.
2. Makes Economic Sense
Keeping a vital piece of medical emergency equipment like a defibrillator makes economic sense for a business because helping an employee recover quickly from a heart attack means that they will also be able to return to work sooner. Having a defibrillator onsite can also prevent a business from having to cover medical expenses and other liabilities due to a fatality.
3. Helps You Fight a Major Cause of Death
Cardiac arrests are one of the major causes of death in Canada. By including a defibrillator in the medical emergency supplies, a business will be able to not only provide medical attention to someone experiencing a cardiac arrest on the premises but also make a significant contribution in fighting a major cause of death in Canada.
4. Helps Enhance the Chances of Survival of Victims
One of the main reasons to have a defibrillator handy on the worksite is that providing timely medical assistance to a person who has had a cardiac arrest with the help of a defibrillator enhances their chances of survival when compared to only performing CPR.
