It is vital for employers to have a policy in place for the event of an accident or injury at work. Figures from the HSE show nearly two million people in the UK suffered work-related ill health last year in the UK.

It is against the law for employers to not have first aid policies in place, including at least one trained first aider per certain number of employees. It’s also best practice to ensure that your team remains happy, healthy and motivated.

Imperative have looked at some of the key reasons why your business needs an up-to-date first aid policy, and advice on how to implement this.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the ultimate medical emergency - when the heart stops beating, immediate action is required to prevent death.

Every minute without Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) reduces the chances of survival by around 10%. The issue of SCA has been pushed into the media due to high profile cases such as Christian Eriksen and NFL player Damar Hamlin.

Luckily, these athletes survived thanks to decisive action from the people around them who administered CPR and used an AED. At Imperative Training, we believe everyone should have the same opportunity at survival should cardiac arrest strike.

When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, immediate Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is vital for the best chance at survival. CPR acts as a manual pump for the heart, continuing to push blood to vital organs while the heart’s normal rhythm has stopped.

Yet is CPR by itself enough to revive someone who has suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)?
