Should all tradies carry a defibrillator with them on the job?


Those who work in physically demanding industries like tradesmen and construction workers are often faced with many risks when it comes to workplace related injuries.

To ensure that you and your staff are prepared as possible for a medical emergency, it’s important to keep up to date with the latest first aid standards. To really make sure you’re prepared for any kind of medical emergency—the specialists at First Aid Accident & Emergency (FAAE) suggest that you also invest in peace of mind with a Construction defibrillator pack to carry with you on the job site. Plumbers, builders, electricians and other tradesmen are at increased risk of an accident or medical emergency arising while at work. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can strike at any time and in any place.

The chances of surviving SCA when a defibrillator is used is significantly increased compared to when CPR is used alone. This is why our team of first aid specialists recommend that all workplaces have a defib at the ready in case SCA decides to strike.

For mobile tradies who are always moving from location to location, we recommend carrying a portable defibrillator with you in your work vehicle.
