An AED (automated external defibrillator) in the workplace is an invaluable addition to health and safety provision for your employees as they are proven to save lives. It is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can stop an irregular rhythm and allow a normal rhythm to resume in a heart in sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest is an abrupt loss of heart function. If it’s not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death.

With installation of any AED we highly recommend you train personnel in its usage. AEDs are safe to use by anyone who’s been trained to operate them. AEDs make it possible for more people to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required.

This Blue Energy EFR course teaches the essential skills required by an AED operator and gives students the confidence to know what to do in this kind of emergency. No previous first aid knowledge is necessary to attend an AED course.
