AEDs can be used on victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States. It can happen anywhere, to anyone, any time, without warning, without symptoms, and regardless of age or general health. Victims have a better chance of survival when defibrillated within the American Heart Association recommended response time of 3-5 minutes. Defibrillation is the only definitive treatment for converting ventricular fibrillation, the heart rhythm of victims in cardiac arrest.
Who needs an AED?
OSHA strongly recommends placement of AEDs in all work environments!
- Daycare Facilities
- Manufacturing Facilities
- Athletic/Recreational Complexes
- Trains, Buses, Rail Systems
- Shopping Malls
- Community Centers
- Police/Fire Departments, EMS Providers

- Simply - anywhere people gather!
The National Safety Council offers a selection of lifesaving AEDs, response equipment, CPR manikins and more.
Are AEDs Available in Your Workplace?
About 13% of workplace fatalities reported to OSHA are caused by sudden cardiac arrest, and 34% of organizations with an AED program have used their AED at least once to save a life.
Nearly 60% of all cardiac arrests are witnessed. This means that someone is nearby to help.
- The sooner a defibrillation shock, the greater the chance for full recovery
- Survival rates are as high as 45% if defibrillation is provided within five to seven minutes
- Few successful resuscitations happen after 10 minutes
NSC Offers Full Line of AEDs and Supplies
NSC is pleased to partner with two leading AED manufacturers — Philips and Zoll— to provide you with a full line of AEDs and AED supplies. For more information about Phillips AED, click here.
AEDs are designed to be used by lay people. It's not always easy to tell if a victim is in cardiac arrest, but innovative AED technology ensures a shock only will be administered when necessary.
Knowing the appropriate action to take before paramedics arrive is crucial to saving a person in cardiac arrest. NSC courses are an excellent choice, whether you have a large company to train or just a handful of employees.

The National Safety Council Employee Safety Perception Survey provides your organization the information and insight necessary to gauge and improve your safety performance. Surveys are leading indicators of future safety performance, unlike injury rates, which are lagging indicators of past experience. With this valid and reliable information, you can evaluate your program, establish priorities, motivate improvement, and monitor performance at multiple sites, locations, and departments.
The National Safety Council researchers have developed a unique survey that enables organizations to evaluate their safety management systems from several perspectives. More than just obtaining safety performance data, our in-house staff of research and statistics experts also helps management interpret the meaning behind the numbers. We benchmark your results with a proprietary database of surveys conducted at more than 750 establishments, representing over a million employees, to give you a perspective on how your safety management system compares to other operations.
