Whether in the workplace or at home, there is always a chance of an emergency when there are people around. There’s no way to predict when someone might collapse from cardiac arrest, stop breathing, or lose consciousness. That’s why everyone should always be prepared to handle an emergency and should make it a point to learn CPR as soon as possible. American BLS offers a Free CPR course as well as options to get your CPR certification online to show your employer that you have correctly mastered the CPR skills necessary to save lives and keep the workplace safe.
Statistics show that CPR performed by bystanders can double or triple an victim’s chance of survival. However, only 46% of victim’s actually receive CPR during cardiac arrest. This means that less than half of people who are unconscious or not breathing get help from those around them. Most of the time bystanders fail to help because they are unsure of what to do or are scared that they might do something wrong. Many times it is a co-worker or family member who is the victim.
Whether or not you are required to have a CPR certification for your job, it is extremely important that you learn hands-only CPR in the case of an emergency in the workplace or at home. It is important to learn the skills necessary to start someone’s heart beating again and potentially save them from death. Being trained in CPR can mean the difference between someone living and someone dying during an emergency. This is extremely important in the workplace or in any situation where there are a lot of people.
Getting your CPR certification online shows your commitment to learning CPR skills by passing an assessment quiz after you have taken the Free CPR Course and ordering your official certification documents. Some businesses require all their employees to be trained and certified in CPR. This is more common when the employees work with people in potentially dangerous situations like lifeguards, teachers, security officers or healthcare providers. American BLS offers CPR certification online through the website. You can get certified in CPR by taking the Free CPR/BLS Course, passing the assessment exam, and then ordering your official certification documents. Online CPR certification costs $18.95.
