The Powerheart® G5 AEDs from manufacturer Cardiac Science will be deployed across Mace sites, including 70 long and short-term projects currently taking place in the UK, to protect its employees and supply chain members in the case of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
Jennie Armstrong, Occupational Health Lead for Construction at Mace, has delivered a number of health awareness sessions to Mace employees, while the London Ambulance Trust's Tim Chivers has delivered CPR/defibrillator training on site.
The agreement to install the defibrillators is an extension of Mace's new occupational health strategy launched earlier in 2015.
Mace is working closely with the London Ambulance Service to install the Powerheart® G5 defibrillators, which are the first AEDs to combine real-time cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidance, customised patient therapy and fast shock times.
Mace opted for the Cardiac Science unit due to its innovative features, including CPR feedback prompts for effective chest compressions and depth, and variable escalating en-ergy shock capacity.
Jason Millett, Mace's Group Board Sponsor for Health & Safety, explains: "We chose the Powerheart® G5 because it's intuitive to use and also has a dual language option, which means it's ideal for our international roll out."
Jason adds: "Mace has set an ambitious five-year challenge to take its health and safety standards and performance from industry best practice to world leading. Our 'Safety first. Second nature.' programme aims to create a culture that lives and breathes health and safety every day."

Wiley chose RRC not only because of their expertise in health and safety and their pedigree in publications, but also because they wanted to work with a company that could make the subject understandable to non-experts.

Before introducing the Smart Key Manager, ArcelorMittal relied on a twin-key system to grant workers access to forklift trucks and radio controls for overhead cranes.
