At least two people within each workplace (department or equivalent) at the University are to be trained in first aid. The Occupational Health Service provides training in CPR and first aid, as well as refresher training which is to be conducted every three years.
In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, time is crucial. Once you have called 112, it can take up to 20 minutes before an ambulance is on site. Therefore, it is always important to call and immediately begin performing CPR.
Every workplace within the University is to be part of a heart-safe zone, which means that:
- there are procedures and preparedness for handling a cardiac arrest and calling 112
- there is competency in CPR, both with and without a defibrillator, so that help can begin immediately
- all staff members know who has been trained in CPR
- all staff members know where the defibrillators are
- treatment with a defibrillator can begin within three minutes
- the defibrillator should be registered in the national defibrillator registry
A defibrillator is self-explanatory, but should be seen as a complement to CPR which must always be performed in the event of a cardiac arrest. Every defibrillator includes training for ten people, in accordance with the agreement. Details of the agreement can be found in Lupin under the agreement category “Arbetsmiljö och hälsovård” (Work environment and healthcare).
