Short for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, CPR is a lifesaving procedure performed on someone going through cardiac arrest. CPR keeps the blood flow active until medical staff arrive and takes over.
While performing CPR might sound intimidating, engaging in hands-on CPR training classes can help you take strides towards equipping your employees for an emergency. Ensuring that your employees receive CPR training can help foster a safer, more responsible workplace.
WHY IS CORPORATE CPRS TRAINING IMPORTANT?
An emergency can happen at any time, and learning how to administer CPR can turn out to be a critical skill. Let’s dive into three primary reasons why companies should offer group CPR training to their employees.
1. IT’S FUN TO LEARN AND BOOST MORALE
We work hard to make our classes interactive, engaging, and fun for your employees, ensuring that they’ll feel equipped to administer CPR if the need ever arises. Each class is hand tailored to the exact needs of your organization, taught by safety experts.
2. YOU’LL FEEL MORE PREPARED AND IN CONTROL DURING AN EMERGENCY
The last thing you want to have is a workplace emergency where an employee needs CPR right away, but none of your employees feel confident enough to step in and administer it. We want to empower your employees to feel confident in their ability to calmly step in during an emergency. In our CPR classes, we provide state-of-the-art equipment and experienced instructors that can empower your employees to administer CPR.
3. YOU CAN SAVE LIVES
We’re serious here. Cardiovascular Disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. 735,000 people in the U.S. have a heart attack each year, according to the Center for Disease Control. Preparing your employees to step in and save a life could be one of the best decisions you can make for your company.
4. YOU’LL INCREASE WORKPLACE SAFETY
It’s easy to think of workplace safety in terms of what the employer can do, but CPR can actually be one of the most beneficial safety precautions that your company can provide to your employees. Offering CPR training (or even sponsoring a CPR certification for your employees) helps support your organization’s efforts to create a safe workplace, meeting Occupation Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) standards and equipping your employees with life-saving skills.
