April 28: World Day for Safety & Health at Work

Liza Mendelson

World Day for Health and Safety takes place on April 28. The purpose of the awareness day is to promote decent, safe and healthy work in the workplace environment. We explore the positive safety expectation and health culture.


This awareness day is part of the centenary anniversary of the U.N.’s International Labour Organization (ILO), which will “Launch a global report ... sharing the story of a 100 years in saving lives and promoting safe and healthy working environments.”


The Importance of Occupational Safety and Health

Every year the occurrence of occupational accidents and diseases, including work-related stress, increases. Some 430 million people may be affected each year, and around 2 million people lose their lives every year due to accidents and diseases linked directly to their work. 


While workplace dangers certainly warrant our attention:

  • What about expecting the unexpected, such as an employee experiencing a cardiac arrest outside the hospital?
  • Is your workplace fully prepared for an incident that requires CPR or even a defibrillator?


Employee Safety Comes First

A company’s greatest asset is undoubtedly its employees. This is why employers need to do everything in their power to create a happy and safe working environment. While having an efficient human resources department will undoubtedly contribute to a constructive workplace, investing in the following will make a difference between someone living and dying during a medical emergency. 

Life Rescue Training is here to assist in the following areas:


  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) & Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Training - provides the knowledge and skills for adult, child, and infant CPR, the use of an AED, and relief for choking.
  • First Aid Training - covers medical emergencies, injury emergencies, and environmental emergencies. 
  • Bloodborne Pathogens (BBP) Training (contact us to learn more) – how to handle encountered blood or other infectious materials.
  • One-on-One Private Training (in-class session) - developed to provide a convenient date and time for our clients who need their certification on demand. This process provides ease for our clients who are unable to make it to one of our classes or who need their certification in a hurry.
  • Active Violence Emergency Response - AVERT (Shooter) Training - earn how to stop bleeding in a severely injured person and act quickly with emergency response tactics for surviving a violent encounter. Prepare your organization to anticipate potential violence and react quickly in life-threatening situations.


 These curriculum-based options listed above are essential standardized training programs that make it easy to bring lifesaving skills to your workforce. Let us guide you in choosing the proper course and AED device for your facility/workplace.


Life Rescue Training’s goal is to provide practical and easy-to-understand CPR, AED, and First Aid training so that you will feel confident and comfortable helping those in need.

We will prepare you to be Rescue Ready to Help Save A Life!
