Knowing CPR and how to use it
During Saturday’s Euro 2020 game, Danish footballer Christian Eriksen collapsed and was given urgent medical treatment.
As the distressing event was broadcast it highlighted the importance of acting quickly in an emergency and ultimately helped to save his life. We hope he makes a full recovery.
Most of our sites and offices are fitted with an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) which anyone can use in the event of an emergency, the machine comes with in-built step by step instructions.
It is important to familiarise yourself with the location of the nearest AED to you in your work location. In the event of an emergency, please do not leave the person unattended, and ask someone to bring the portable AED to you. Initiate CPR whilst you wait.
We hope that you will not be in a situation where you will need to, but knowing CPR and being brave enough to use it saves lives. Please take a few minutes out of your day to watch this video:
