It is the middle of dinner service on a busy Saturday and there is an elderly gentlemen who is choking. Would your staff know how to react in this medical emergency, would they be able to effectively perform the Heimlich Maneuver? In 2015 the United States experienced a catastrophic 5,051 deaths from choking incidents and more than half of them were over the age of 74. Being assertive during a medical emergency in critical and quickly intervention can prevent the victim from becoming unresponsive. Having your staff certified in choke safety guidelines can not only save a life, but it is also a requirement in Massachusetts for restaurants with a seating capacity of 25 or more people according General Laws Chapter 111 Section 31, and Chapter 94, Section 305D. Under this law restaurants are mandated to have at least one employee per shift certified in the Heimlich Maneuver.
Each year we train hundreds of restaurant workers about the importance of using the Heimlich Maneuver to remove a foreign object, using an AED for a victim with cardiac arrest. the proper technique for chest compressions, using a barrier device such as
a pocket mask, and much more.
