Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is when one’s heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.
In Ireland, 5,000 people are estimated to suffer sudden cardiac arrest each year. That’s 13-14 people Every Day! Out of these 5,000 people only 1 person a day survives.
Survival rates following a cardiac arrest are directly related to time it takes to begin resuscitation and particularly defibrillation. Without immediate treatment, death can occur within minutes. However, with treatments such as CPR and use of an automated external defibrillator (Heartsaver AED ), provided by someone who has completed CPR/AED training survival rates can triple! This is what is called a return of spontaneous circulation or ROSC.
Are you aware that the new regulation (EU) 2015/757 on the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide emissions from maritime transport was adopted on 29 April 2015 and entered into force on 1 July 2015?. Are you also aware that it is now also expressly provided that the European member states will have to set up a system of penalties for failure to comply with these new obligations?
European Health and Safety Week 2015 runs from October 19th – 23rd 2015 in workplaces all across Europe.
The theme for this year is “Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress”.
More than 5,000 people in the EU are fatally injured as a result of accidents in the workplace annually.
The aim of European Health & Safety Week is to build awareness that a high percentage of accidents and fatalities could be prevented by taking measures to reduce the potential for accidents and by building safety into organisations culture.
At Chris Mee Group we always aim to promote healthy workplaces.
We invite you to watch our free webinar on the topic of “Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress” presented by Patricia Murray (Organisational Psychologist with the HSA).
