CPR in the Workplace: Why It Matters


If you're an employer, understanding what your employees should do during a cardiac arrest at work is crucial. The key to a successful CPR course is consistent practice! Reading about it or watching videos won't be enough; practical application is essential. Regular practice and refreshers every few months help keep the skills sharp. Here are some other reasons why CPR training for adults at work matters:

The key to a successful CPR course is practicing, practicing, practicing! It's not just something you can read about in a book or watch on a video.

CPR is a skill that needs to be practiced to be effective. You should train with a partner so that you can learn how to perform chest compressions and rescue breaths together. Get creative and practice at work--it doesn't matter if there are people around or not; they will appreciate knowing how they can save lives! If there aren't any other employees who want to take the course with you, try asking some family members or friends who live close by (or even farther away).

You don't need any special equipment for this practice session either--just make sure everyone has comfortable clothing on before starting up their own personal training program where everyone learns how effective CPR techniques work best when applied correctly under real-world conditions: with minimal light levels present during an emergency situation; while wearing bulky protective clothing such as fireproof gear; without having access nearby medical supplies like oxygen tanks/masks etc...

If someone collapses suddenly at work due to cardiac arrest, it's important not just to know what steps must be taken immediately afterward but also to understand why those steps matter so much during those critical moments when seconds count most towards saving someone's life!

What should you do if someone has a cardiac arrest at work? To save them, you have to know the key steps.

If you witness a cardiac arrest, you should:

  • Call 911. If it's safe to do so, start CPR immediately and keep going until help arrives.
  • Keep the victim stable until medical professionals arrive on the scene (or at least until they take over). Don't be afraid to ask for assistance if necessary--you don't have to do this alone! If someone else is available, ask them to help keep the victim still while administering chest compressions or breaths into their mouth; if no one else is around but there are some towels nearby, use those as makeshift splints by placing them under both sides of their head with pressure applied toward either side so that they don't move while they're being worked on by emergency personnel later down the line (but make sure not too much pressure gets applied because then again it could cause more harm than good).

Here are some other reasons why CPR training for adults at work matters.

When you think about it, there are a lot of reasons why CPR training for adults at work matters. It's not just about saving lives. Here are some other ways that having this type of training can improve the workplace:

  • It's a good way to improve employee morale. When employees feel like they have something they can do together as a team--like learning CPR--it makes them feel more connected in their jobs and can even make them happier overall.
  • It's a great way to build camaraderie between coworkers. Learning how to save someone from dying is no small feat; it takes teamwork and coordination between all parties involved (which means everyone!). So if you want your employees to feel like they're part of something bigger than themselves, this is one way you could do it!
  • Improves employee retention rates by improving job satisfaction levels among existing staff members who may otherwise leave due to low morale or lack thereof caused by various factors such as poor management practices etcetera...

You can train coworkers to save lives.

CPR is a skill that can save lives, and it's one that many people don't know how to perform. By learning CPR, you'll be able to help someone who has suffered cardiac arrest in their workplace or community. You may even be able to save a life yourself!

It's not just important for the workplace--it's also important for your community as well. In fact, studies show that 80% of sudden cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital setting (like at home or work). It's crucial for adults at work or school because they will likely be the first responders during an emergency situation involving someone who needs immediate medical attention such as shock or heart attack symptoms like chest pain/pressure/tightness; shortness of breath; dizziness/fainting sensation


We hope that this post has given you some insight into why CPR training in the workplace is important. The most important thing to remember is that if someone has a cardiac arrest at work, it's up to you--and your coworkers--to save them. You can do that by knowing how to administer CPR and practicing regularly so that when an emergency happens (and it will), everyone knows what they need to do without hesitation.
