How Your Organization Can Benefit from On-Site CPR and First Aid Certification Classes
In the event of an emergency, knowing how to quickly and properly perform the necessary life-saving techniques, including Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Basic Life Support (BLS), can often mean the difference between the life and death of a victim. By receiving the proper training and certification in CPR and other life-saving techniques, medical personnel, other professionals and citizens can have the confidence to respond effectively in the event of an emergency.
While most healthcare providers, including doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and firefighters, are required to receive specific life support certifications for their respective profession (including ACLS, PALS, PEARS, NRP), many hospitals, medical schools and other organizations are unaware of just how beneficial on-site training and certification can be for their staff.
Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, accounting for anywhere between 250,000 and 400,000 deaths each year according to the American Heart Association. And according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 10,000 cardiac arrests occur while victims are at work. However, when CPR and other First Aid care is provided within the first five to seven minutes of an incident, a victims chances of survival can increase by 60 percent according to OSHA. By offering CPR and First Aid classes, either on-site or at a training facility like SureFire CPR in Southern California, organizations and businesses can ensure that all employees receive vital life-saving skills to help increase these chances of survival in the event of an emergency at the workplace. Furthermore, by offering CPR and First Aid classes, businesses can often help reduce their insurance rates and help their staff to better work together as a coordinated, productive team. Having a team of trainers come to your location also conveniently avoids any downtime and costs associated with off-site training, and will ensure that your entire team is up-to-date with safety regulations.
Employees from a wide range of professions including schools, fitness centers, security administration, business offices, construction companies, corporations and many more, can also benefit from being adequately prepared to respond to an emergency in the workplace. On-site training in Southern California can help boost the confidence of employees, make the workplace a safer place and help to build team cooperation and morale.

Why Will Onsite Group CPR and Emergency Response Classes Benefit My Organization?
By offering on-site training with SureFire CPR, employers and other organizations can ensure that all of their personnel receive the highest caliber training available and that they are empowered with the confidence to act in an emergency. On-site classes enable organizations to confirm that all of their employees are trained and certified with the most up-to-date life-saving techniques to meet safety regulations and to help businesses save money with discounts on insurance. Your organization can also be able to save time and money by avoiding downtime and travel expenses for off-site training.
In addition to ensuring that your entire team is on the same page with the most current life-saving techniques and certifications, on-site classes also offer your organization a range of other benefits. Upon completion of training with SureFire CPR, students feel confident that they are working in a safe work environment. Classes also offer numerous team-building opportunities and allow employees to interact in a supportive learning environment beyond their typical work-related tasks and relationships. Overall, the morale of your team will be boosted as a result of on-site classes. In certain cases, on-site training and certification can also help your organization meet workplace safety and insurance requirements, and reduces the potential for workplace liabilities.
Another advantage of on-site CPR training is that it is a useful skill for employees in their personal lives as well. Not only can training make the workplace a safer place, but it can also help the team keep their family and friends safe when they are not at work. CPR training is a life skill that can directly impact your employees’ lives and provide them with tools to make the right decisions at a time of need. AHA statistics state that “70% of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed.” Considering that 88% of cardiac arrests occur at home – it quickly becomes apparent how valuable this training can be for each of your employees and their families.
On-site CPR and other First Aid certification classes with SureFire CPR conveniently offer your organization numerous benefits at an affordable price.
