The National Safety Council makes it easy for anyone to learn CPR and AED. We give you all the background information you need to feel confident in the event of an emergency - and help save a life. About 400 workplace deaths from cardiac arrest are reported to OSHA every year. An average time to defibrillation of 5 minutes would produce a 40 percent survival rate. That's 160 lives per year that could be saved. Employers should consider using AEDs at their worksites to reduce time to defibrillation and improve survival rates.
