Manufacturing and industrial workspaces often have multiple physical hazards that could pose a risk to workers. While OSHA regulations have been successfully making workplaces of all kinds safer since their establishment in 1970, there are still occasions when injury or even death can occur due to an occupational incident. Many of these injuries can be treated more quickly when employees have CPR and first aid training. Additionally, there are cases when a workplace death could be prevented if nearby workers had knowledge of CPR and AED treatment. The American Heart Association (AHA) or American Red Cross curriculum comprehensively covers the signs of a heart attack and stroke, the proper response to an industrial accident, first aid for a range of injuries, and more. CPR4LIFE USA provides complete AHA onsite training for manufacturing and industrial companies in Minneapolis, MN and the surrounding metro area. Our onsite training covers basic CPR, first aid, and AED certification.
Onsite training for manufacturing to providing a safe work environment.
Not only are CPR and first aid important skills for injuries and accidents in an industrial setting, but manufacturing employees and workers that physically exert themselves on the job are much more likely to experience cardiac arrest. Onsite training for manufacturing and industrial companies will help ensure your staff is confident enough to react correctly in an emergency situation.
Proper training can help prepare for a multitude of life-threatening situations.
CPR is critical for many industrial and manufacturing spaces. In fact, OSHA regulations require certain workers to be CPR-certified on the job. Logging operations, permit-required confined spaces, and work in electric power generation, transmission, and distribution are all examples of jobs that require CPR certification to meet OSHA rules.
Some of the most dangerous incidents that will require CPR, AED, and first aid treatment on the job include:
- Cardiac arrest or heart attack from overexertion or pre-existing conditions
- Heat stroke
- Anaphylactic reactions
- Bone breaks
- Collapsed lungs
- Head injuries
- Opioid overdose
Manufacturing settings have become much safer over the years, but there are still clear dangers. There are thousands of occupational injuries and fatalities every year in multiple industrial settings. The more workers have access to CPR and first aid certification, the more these incidents can be treated or prevented.
CPR4LIFE USA provides onsite training on a flexible schedule to help companies certify all their workers through extensive education. Onsite instruction limits the downtime of your production schedule, helps put into context CPR and first aid on the job, and certifies your staff faster than other types of courses.
