Full protection against sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) for people working in permanent or temporary locations is now a reality after a ground-breaking deal between a leading defibrillator manufacturer and specialist supply organisation.
AEDs in the Workplace
Companies in the construction, infrastructure and industrial sector can now hire Cardiac Science’s Powerheart® G5 Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) as part of an extensive range of health and safety equipment from Supply UK.
The Powerheart® G5 AED is the first AED to combine real-time cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidance, customised patient therapy and fast shock times.
It is designed to enable both professional rescuers and first-time users to provide swift and effective life-saving therapy to someone who has suffered a SCA. Available now from Supply UK’s Survey & Laser business network, the scheme provides an accessible and affordable way for businesses to access life-saving technology.
On-site Health and Safety
Dave Thomas, Managing Director at Survey & Laser, said: “The Powerheart G5 will deliver high quality CPR with defibrillation on the spot to save a life. We’ve teamed up with Cardiac Science to provide an affordable and workable solution based around service, equipment hire and training provision for organisations of all sizes. This will make the process of accessing AEDs easier, especially where the need is short term.”
Supply UK is a leading service and equipment provider to construction, infrastructure and industrial sectors across the UK with main depots in Manchester, Derby, Cardiff and Aylesford in Kent.
Dave Thomas continued: “As health and safety requirements become more demanding it was a natural move to incorporate the Powerheart G5 AED into our equipment portfolio.
“It will ensure that in the event of a SCA happening, the best possible therapy is available to the victim, critically, within the first three minutes, before the emergency services arrive at the scene.”
