What you need to know
Sandia Employee Health Services offers and coordinates programs that can help all of us understand how to assist others during a health or workplace emergency.
CPR and First Aid Training
Employee Health Services (EHS) offers American Heart Association-certified cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes to members of the workforce who are required to perform CPR as part of their job duties.
In MED 104 participants learn proper CPR technique, as well as choking treatment for adults, children and infants. The course also covers legal and ethical considerations, safety during CPR for the rescuer and an overview of automatic external defibrillation (AED).
Participants who successfully complete this course receive a two-year certification from the American Heart Association and a course completion in TEDS.
You will need your manager’s approval and a project and task number to register.
MED102 provides nonmedical personnel with the information necessary to respond appropriately in the event of an injury or medical emergency. Practical skills that show the participant how to administer first aid (i.e., controlling bleeding and managing shock) will be taught.
Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) Training
Sandia Employee Health Services coordinates a state-certified AED program to provide AEDs at strategic workplace locations on our campuses.
To request an AED, you need to work with Employee Health Services to identify and certify staff in the proposed location and complete all required documentation. Contact HR Solutions for more details.
First Aid Kits
First aid kits are kept near AEDs, and you can take the course “MED102” to learn basic first aid for worksite illness and injuries and how to report these illnesses and injuries to Sandia’s Employee Health Services onsite clinics.
