It’s a Keeper: CPR Handouts
These CPR handouts are chock full of helpful info and would make great promotional items for National Safety Month.
June's a lot of things. It's the beginning of summer. It's the month the Flyers win the Stanley Cup (fingers crossed). It's full of picnics and sun and the end of the school year. June is also National Safety Month.
The National Safety Council pares the month down into five areas to focus on: teen driving safety, avoiding cell phone use while driving, the dangers of overexertion at home and work, prescription drug overdose prevention and summer safety. Workplaces participate in National Safety Month, and my dad's is usually among those (though he wasn't exactly sure on plans for his steel plant this year). If you're looking for promotional items for National Safety Month, we have a whole category devoted to safety-related promotional products.
I wanted to pull a few specific ones out to highlight them, and I chose our CPR handouts. These are great for National Safety Month, but they're relevant at any time. They contain good information, and would be something that people hold onto if you decide to use CPR handouts.
The American Heart Association put together a list of facts on CPR, and one struck me the most: "About 80 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in private residential settings, so being trained to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can mean the difference between life and death for a loved one."
That's a huge number, and keeping CPR handouts at the ready can serve as a reminder to renew CPR certification. The CPR handouts also provide tips on CPR techniques and references to help with CPR.
We carry a clever little pen that doubles as a CPR reference, and it would make a great CPR handout. At first glance, it looks like any other pen, but tucked inside are some guidelines on administering CPR.
We also have a calendar that could be used as a CPR handout. Like the reference pen, it goes through the guidelines for giving CPR, and you can customize the CPR calendar with your logo and hand the CPR calendars out at safety-related events.
Finally, we offer a CPR reference magnet that goes into a little more detail than the pens or the calendars. It shows guidelines for different age groups, and these CPR handouts are colorful reminders and a quick reference.
Is your workplace doing anything to celebrate National Safety Month?
