OSHA CPR Requirements
OSHA, also know as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration was formed by congress in 1970 to protect the safety of United States workers. This organization has established workplace regulations, educational trainings, and frequently inspects workplaces to ensure the employee’s safety. With these new regulations OSHA has been extremely effective and has seen a fifty percent drop in workplace fatalities since 1970.
During a cardiac arrest CPR is a lifesaving technique that can double a victim’s chance of survival. OSHA recommends and requires CPR for logging operations, electric power generation, transmissions, and distribution. According to OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.151(b) if a hospital or clinic is not in near proximity to the workplace First Aid training is required and First Aid supplies must be available in the workplace. While the term “near proximity” can be ambiguous, OSHA has defined it as no greater than three to four minutes away from your workplace.
