Are you a member of APPA and a RP3 Provider?

 

To be a Reliable Public Power Provider RP3 - requires a strong commitment of quality, reliability and safety.  Check out the application.  Did you know one of the provisions B8 includes having AEDs at appropriate locations.  The applications says:

"Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) (B8)

Ensuring that employees are CPR certified may help save a life. An additional life-saving tool is the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), also referred to as a Portable Defibrillator (PD). Defibrillators are available from numerous medical equipment providers. When maintained and used properly, AEDs can mean the difference between life and death. Based on industry standards and nationally recognized research2, the RP3 Panel has determined that AEDs should be available at all times at every work-site location to ensure employee safety. Work-site locations include office locations, operations/field work-site locations, and power plant locations. The description provided should clearly outline how the utility ensures that AEDs are available at all work-site locations. Depending on how a utility configures its work force, AEDs may be needed on every truck in the field to meet these criteria."

Please contact us if you would like help developing your AED program.  We work with utilities with hundreds of AEDs.

Utility workers are at risk every day due to the nature of their work.  Hazardous situations, weather, potential for electrocution and being struck by lightening all can contribute to a sudden cardiac arrest.
