Cardiac Safety: AED deployment, maintenance, legislation, and recalls

This webinar occurred on August 18, 2010 at 2:00 PM (EST).
Watch this webinar On-Demand.

If it weren’t for Dan Warter’s initiative, an Aker Solutions employee might be dead right now. Dan championed his company’s AED program. Take 60 minutes to hear Dan explain how he did it: what budget committee obstacles he overcame, what five “musts” his program had to have, how he selected a vendor, and more. (Did you know that sudden cardiac arrest is responsible for 13 percent of all workplace fatalities?)

Dan will be joined by Jim Madaffer, former San Diego City Councilmember, who will give an overview of AED legislation. Jim was responsible for the single greatest public access defibrillation program in the United States: San Diego Project Heartbeat which, to date, has saved at least 72 people at work, hotels, and elsewhere.

This webinar is strictly a what-you-need-to-know practical approach to getting your program off the ground. Spend 60 minutes now; save hours later.

You won’t be disappointed.
