Defibrillators for your workplace

Businesses can play a big part in creating a nation of life savers. Having a defibrillator in your workplace and training colleagues in CPR means that more people will know what do when someone has a cardiac arrest.

Should my business have a defibrillator?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommend that certain businesses have defibrillators and others should perform a needs assessment to identify if they should have one. This needs assessment includes:

  • consideration of how many people may be passing through, or near, your workplace (as the likelihood of cardiac arrest increases with more people)
  • the age of those people (as cardiac arrest is more likely with age)
  • the nature of the location (as remoteness may affect emergency service response times).

Some businesses choose to have defibrillators on their premises regardless of a needs assessment because they want to demonstrate their commitment to keeping their colleagues and local community safe.

What are the benefits of having a defibrillator in my workplace?

Less than 1 in 10 people in the UK survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. This has been partly attributed to two factors that businesses are perfectly placed to improve:

  • there aren’t enough people prepared to perform CPR when someone has a cardiac arrest
  • there aren’t enough defibrillators.

By having a defibrillator in your workplace and training colleagues in CPR, businesses can play an important part in helping more people survive a cardiac arrest. You’ll also demonstrate to colleagues and the local community that your business takes people’s safety seriously.
