A life-saving defibrillator is now available at Asbestech’s Head Office and Warehouse in Hatfield.
The portable defibrillator can be used by anyone to help restart the heart when someone suffers a cardiac arrest.
Although no training is needed to use the defibrillator, staff at Asbestech have also recently undertaken first aid training which included the use of the defibrillator.
Peter Coles; Asbestech’s Warehouse Manager said, “Head Office is a busy environment with in excess of 100 members of staff passing through on an average day. Whilst we hope the defibrillator does not get used, it is reassuring to know there is access to a defibrillator in the event of an emergency and someone’s life could hopefully be saved.”
The defibrillator is not only accessible to the Head Office team in Hatfield but is also available to those near-by and is registered with the emergency services, so that in the case of an emergency, the defibrillator could not only save the life of an employee but also a member of the public.
