AED’s for Retail

SCA claims thousands of lives annually, with over 80% occurring out of the hospital. Retail environments see a vast amount of footfall every day – and with 3,000 people suffering SCA every week in the UK, companies have a duty of care to provide a defibrillator.

Despite this significant statistic, only a handful of retail premises in the UK have a defibrillator on site, and there are no laws enforcing the placement of AEDs in public. Prominent organisations such as the British Heart Foundation and St John’s Ambulance recommend defibrillator installation for all businesses – so if you want to join the growing number of retailers choosing to protect staff and customers with an AED on site, you’ve come to the right place.

Why should you invest in a defibrillator for your retail business?

Retailers encounter a wide variety of people every day – and since SCA can affect anyone at any time, even seemingly fit and healthy young people, all retailers can benefit from installing a defibrillator on site.

SCA is fatal without early intervention. Survival rates without defibrillation are less than 10% – but with defibrillator use within the first few minutes of SCA, a person’s chances of survival increase by over 50%. Conversely, for each minute that passes, the chance of survival drops by 10% – making easy access to an AED essential in SCA.

Ambulance response times vary from area to area and average around 11 minutes, which could be too late.

FAQ’s

Check out our most frequently asked questions about defibrillators for retail. If your question is still not answered, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, where our friendly and helpful team are on hand to help.

What type of defibrillator is best for retail?

You can’t go wrong with Martek’s range of Lifeline AEDs, as it’s one of the easiest-to-use defibrillators available on the market. This makes it the perfect defibrillator to be placed in the hands of the public who may be untrained in an emergency. You can browse our packages or speak to our team for more information on which model best suits your needs.

Do I need insurance or special permission to install a defibrillator on my premises?

No – as defibrillators are designed to be used by members of the public, no special insurance or permission is needed to purchase one.

Will I be liable if something goes wrong?

No – as long as you use an AED from a reputable supplier and follow the manufacturer’s instructions, you will not be liable if something goes wrong.  AEDs feature innovative technology, which ensures they cannot be misused – a shock won’t be delivered if it is not needed, so anyone using an AED cannot be held liable if they intend to save someone’s life.

You will, however, be responsible as a business for the upkeep of the AED – ensuring it is rescue ready at all times. Improper care or negligence can have legal consequences, so you must always ensure that your AED is kept in proper working order, replacing the batteries and pads when needed.
We’ll be on hand to help you manage the maintenance and servicing requirements of your AED for complete peace of mind.

Where should I keep the defibrillator?

This will be determined by the size and layout of your business, but a good rule is to keep any AED clearly visible and easily accessible in case of an emergency. We would also advise keeping it close to your staff so that someone can quickly grab it if needed.
