May 18, 2023 Fullchamp Expands CPR & AED Training to Enhance Employee's Ambulance Capability
Fullchamp always attaches great importance to the health and safety of employees. Following the training of junior emergency rescue technicians in April this year, in order to let more colleagues be familiar with the operation of AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) On May 18, 2023, CPR & AED education and training was expanded. This time, 37 employees participated, accounting for about 19.5% of the company's total number of employees. The General Manager of Fullchamp encouraged employees to actively participate in the training, familiarize themselves with the location of AED and the key points of CPR operation, so that they can be prepared and be able to save a life at a critical moment.
During the 1.5 hours session, the instructor shared that heart disease is often in the top three of the top 10 causes of death in Taiwan, and that the most effective way to save a patient from sudden cardiac death is through CPR and AED defibrillation. The principle is that the AED detects an irregular heart rhythm and then delivers an automatic shock to the patient, followed by CPR to restore the heart to a normal rhythm.
The Fullchamp staffs expressed their gratitude to the company for providing the training course. Initially, they were afraid to perform ambulance actions because they were not familiar with the operation, but through the training, they were able to clarify the problems face to face with the instructor and practise to confirm whether the actions were correct.
The Ministry of Health and Welfare of Taiwan has announced that AEDs should be installed in public places, including major transportation and tourist areas. Although the announcement does not stipulate that AEDs should be installed in office premises, Fullchamp has installed an AED in 2014 for the health and well-being of its employees, so that they can use it immediately in case of emergencies. The next training is sheduled in Q4 this year.
There's no finish line for safety!
