Defibrillators for companies, what you need to know

 

Defibrillators for companies are important regardless of the economic activity of the company, it is convenient to be able to guarantee all workers the necessary measures to obtain a safe cardio workspace.

This guarantee is included in the Occupational Risk Prevention Law in article 14, which establishes that workers have the right to effective protection in terms of health at work.

Taking into account that we spend about 8 hours in the workplace and that most cardiorespiratory arrests occur outside the hospital environment, installing defibrillators in companies is essential to fight against sudden death in the workplace.

Despite this, regarding the installation of defibrillators, there is no law that establishes an obligation to install defibrillators in work spaces such as offices, warehouses, production centers, logistics, etc., however, more and more companies are installing defibrillators voluntarily. at your facilities.

The installation of these DEA DESA equipment increases the reputation of the company since it is an aspect that is increasingly valued by society.

 

Prevention of occupational risks and cardioprotection of companies

 

Company cardioprotection not only offers a safer work environment, but also makes the company's values ​​visible, highlighting the importance of a company committed to social responsibility and the cardioprotection of employees, customers and visitors.

 

Legal framework on defibrillators in companies

Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most important health problems in Spain. Anyone without a previous pathology can suffer a sudden cardiac arrest event at work, remember that a cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time, whether due to pathologies, accidents, falls, heat stroke, choking, electrocution, etc. etc.

In the event of a sudden cardiopulmonary arrest, early defibrillation is essential for the survival of the victim, being equipped with DEA ​​DESA defibrillators and having basic life support training can mean the difference between life and death.

That is why, within the Ischemic Cardioprotection Strategies, the need for a legal framework that determines the implementation and development of installation programs for this equipment in small, medium and large companies arises.

Due to the powers over cardioprotection legislation are attributed to each autonomous community, each of them has administered by decree the regulation and use of external defibrillators by non-health personnel.

Thus, there is an obligation to install DESA DEA defibrillators in crowded spaces such as shopping centers, supermarkets, airports, large companies, etc., all within a regulatory framework in each CCAA for the installation and use of AED automatic defibrillators and DESA semiautomatic defibrillators.

Defibrillator regulatory requirements

All cardioprotection equipment that is installed must comply with the regulations of the autonomous community to which it belongs, the regulation determines the regulation and the requirements that must be met. The regulations on external defibrillators of each autonomous community will be the one that determines the control and inspection of the defibrillators.

The spaces where it is mandatory to install this cardioprotection equipment will depend on the regulatory framework of each community in which it is established: the square meters of the space, the influx and transit of people, among other parameters.

Authorized personnel for the use of defibrillators

The persons authorized to use the DEA and DESA defibrillators are established by each autonomous community, each one of these establishes who will be the people who, with or without knowledge, can use the DEA DESA device.

Defibrillator maintenance guarantees

On the other hand, each company that carries out the installation (whether public or private) will be responsible for guaranteeing its maintenance and conservation based on the instructions established by each manufacturer. There is an obligation to maintain defibrillators with periodic technical reviews.
