First Aid Facts

OSHA has interpreted "near proximity" to mean 4-6 minutes from injury to medical care "In areas where accidents resulting in suffocation, severe bleeding, or other life threatening or permanently disabling injury or illness can be expected." - OSHA

CPR Makes a Difference

On average, only 27.4%, out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR. CPR helps maintain vital blood flow to the heart and brain and increases the amount of time that an electric shock from a defibrillator can be effective. Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after cardiac arrest, can double a victim’s chance of survival. If bystander CPR is not provided, a sudden cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival fall 7-10% percent for every minute of delay until defibrillation.

Exposure Control & Safety

OSHA has determined that employees face a significant health risk as the result of occupational exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials because they may contain bloodborne pathogens (BBP).

Employees that are expected to come in contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials must be protected from BBP. Employers are required to develop an exposure control plan and training to protect employees and respond to accidental exposures. (osha)
