St John Ambulance Victoria Calls For Mandatory Workplace Defibrillators – Herald Sun
St John Ambulance (VIC) is calling for mandatory Defibrillators in the workplace, as new research reveals a worryingly low awareness amongst Victorians of this life-saving device in the workplace.
The research, commissioned by St John Ambulance (VIC) shows only three in ten Victorian workers are aware of a Defibrillator in the workplace.
St John Ambulance (VIC) want to draw attention to the importance of these life saving devices in the workplace and the need to educate employees on how to use them.
Five businesses across the state were gifted a Defibrillator from St John Ambulance (VIC), including Seaworks in Williamstown.
