Medical emergencies are some of the most common workplace and school emergencies. Thanks to our comprehensive emergency preparedness training, sudden strokes, seizures, heart attacks, and other medical emergencies don’t have to lead to disaster. In this module, we will teach you how best to recognize and respond to medical emergencies in order to minimize injury or even death.
Our medical emergency preparedness training covers a wide range of possible medical emergency scenarios and appropriate responses. We begin by teaching you basic first aid, such as how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the face of cardiac arrest, and the Heimlich maneuver when an employee or student is choking. We will also show you how to locate and operate your building’s life-saving automated external defibrillator (AED), and recommend if more safety equipment can keep your school or office safer. Medical emergencies can happen at the drop of a hat, and first responders may not necessarily be nearby. By taking these simple steps, you may be able to save a life.
You don’t have to wait until an ambulance arrives to help someone suffering from a medical emergency. In fact, quick and decisive action is often critical. With Global Safety’s medical emergency preparedness training, we will teach you what to do until first responders arrive, in order to keep the patient breathing, conscious, and alert. In a medical emergency, every second counts. Don’t let these life-threatening incidents take you off-guard. Contact Global Safety today and learn how to respond when disaster strikes.
