People at work can suffer injuries or fall ill at any time, regardless of whether the injury or illness is caused by the work they do or not. What is important is that they receive immediate attention and that an ambulance is called if required, so that lives can be saved and minor injuries prevented from becoming major ones.
In 2013, The University of Manchester recieved Gold CardiacSmart status. The CardiacSmart initiative aims to extend the coverage of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) within local communities across the North West; as well as training individuals in basic life support skills. The University, with many defibrillators throughout the campus, is taking every step to increase the chance of survival of anyone who may go into cardiac arrest on campus.
The University also won the 2013 HeartSafe Tourism or Leisure Business of the Year award again in recognition of its work installing AEDs (automated external defibrillators) across its cultural assets, which includes the Manchester Museum, Jodrell Bank, John Rylands Library and the Whitworth Art Gallery.
