What are the chances of Sudden Cardiac Arrest happening at work?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is completely unpredictable. SCA isn’t something that will only happen to older people or those with diagnosed heart conditions. Fit, healthy and young people are also at risk.
Due to the unpredictability of SCA, there’s no telling where or when it could happen—you or one of your colleagues could face SCA while at work. This is why we strongly encourage all industries to invest in a defibrillator for your workplace.
CPR on its own won’t always be enough to save someone who has gone into cardiac arrest. When a defib is used, survival rates are dramatically increased. These days, defibrillators are lightweight and compact—making them easily stored at the workplace.
