Motion text

That this House notes that cardiac arrest is among the top causes of fatality in the workplace; further notes that the provision of early defibrillation via Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) has led to reported survival rates from cardiac arrest of up to 75 per cent, with each minute of delay reducing chances of successful defibrillation by 10 per cent; commends the organisers of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games for recognising the importance of access to AEDs in cases of cardiac arrest and for providing training in their use to thousands of volunteers; and therefore calls on the Government to endorse the campaign supported by the Bakers Union amongst others and introduce a statutory obligation on all UK employers to provide AEDs in places of work.
