From conventional CPR to training in the use of external defibrillators, first aid education in the workplace is today more important than ever before, shares Dr. Scott Zack Michigan. An experienced medical professional and entrepreneur from Detroit, Dr. Zack covers the increasing benefits of first aid education and ongoing training for businesses and their staff.

“First aid knowledge has never been more important,” stresses Dr. Scott Zack Michigan, sharing from his office in Detroit, “particularly in the workplace.”

First aid-trained, entrepreneur and medical professional Dr. Scott Zack Michigan is a long-time proponent for first aid education, both in the community and in the workplace. “Whether in the workplace or the community, first aid knowledge saves lives every day, right across the U.S. and worldwide,” shares the medical expert.

In the United States, first aid education is offered from organizations including First Aid USA and the American Red Cross, mentions Dr. Zack Michigan. Trained in medicine as well as administering first aid for more than 20 years, Dr. Scott Zack Michigan continues to highlight a few key areas of first aid knowledge and training and shares why they’re especially important in the workplace. “Emergencies can happen anywhere, and at any time, but people very often fall sick at work,” suggests Dr. Zack Michigan.

Work is the most common place to become sick outside of the home, according to Dr. Scott Zack Michigan. “We spend much of our time at work, so it should come as no surprise that it’s here that many people tend to fall ill,” he explains, “and often with potentially life-threatening conditions, such as cardiac arrest.”

Considering this, Dr. Scott Zack Michigan says it’s integral that employers and employees alike take first aid knowledge and training seriously. “From traditional CPR to training in the use of automated external defibrillators, we should all commit to maintaining a solid degree of first aid knowledge,” he goes on, “in anticipation of future emergency situations, particularly in the workplace.”

The same is especially true, stresses Dr. Scott Zack Michigan, in workplaces found in rural or more remote areas, and those where limited specialty medical backup exists. Appropriate training, Dr. Zack mentions, from organizations such as the American Red Cross, is now offered online, in person, and via so-called blended training methods. “As such, there’s no reason not to embrace the importance of first aid knowledge, both in and out of the workplace,” suggests the medical professional.

Organizations such as First Aid USA, Dr. Scott Zack Michigan shares, even specialize in classes designed specifically for workplace emergencies. “It’s important that we all take employee safety seriously,” says Dr. Zack Michigan. Management and more technical training options, he further offers, are also available, aimed at executives and other more senior members of staff.

“Further to potentially saving lives, the benefits of first aid training in the workplace doesn’t stop there, either,” adds Dr. Scott Zack Michigan “with the correct first aid training for employees also a significant factor in reducing workers’ compensation expenses – an added bonus for business owners across the board.”
