OSHA - Occupational Safety and Health Standards for Agriculture (29 CFR 1928) Agriculture is one of the most hazardous industries in the nation. Farming is one of the few industries in which the families (who often share the work and live on the premises) are also at risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries. Approximately 1,818,000 full-time workers were employed in production agriculture in the U.S. in 2008. Fatal injuries constitute a significant burden on the agricultural sector, as indicated by the 456 farmers and farm workers who died from a work-related injury for a fatality rate of 25.1 deaths per 100,000 workers during that same year. An estimated 1.12 million children and adolescents under 20 years of age resided on farms in 2006, with about 590,000 of these youth performing work on the farms. In addition to the youth who live on farms, an additional 307,000 children and adolescents were hired to work on U.S. farms in 2006. On average, 113 youth less than 20 years of age die annually from farm-related injuries (1995 -2002), with most of these deaths occurring to youth 16-19 years of age (34%).

Farmers are at high risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries, work-related lung diseases, noise-induced hearing loss, skin diseases, and certain cancers associated with chemical use and prolonged sun exposure. Farming is one of the few industries in which the families (who often share the work and live on the premises) are also at risk for injuries, illness, and death.

Agricultural Workplace Medical Emergencies happen every day and we can prepare your staff for these medical emergencies. Our CPR, First Aid and AED classes are both educational and fun. Our philosophy is that learning should be fun. We feel that if you have fun, laugh and the CPR class is interesting you will enjoy yourself and will absorb and retain the material better. Another major difference, all of our instructors have actually performed CPR, First Aid and used AEDs on real people. Not all instructors have real world CPR First Aid AED experience, they simply read about CPR and First Aid in a book. We believe real world experience makes for a better instructor and believe you will too. All of our courses are designed to comply with the most current OSHA regulations. We offer onsite group safety training classes at your business or you can attend one of our group classes held at our Jupiter - Palm Beach County training classroom.

According to OSHA 13% of all workplace fatalities result from sudden cardiac arrest. According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest claims about 340,000 lives each year – or around 930 every day in the United States. Sudden cardiac arrest, which is the leading cause of death in the United States kills more people than breast cancer, lung cancer, and AIDS combined. Currently 95 percent of all cardiac arrest victims die. Yes, I said ninety five percent of all cardiac arrest victims die.
What medical emergencies does your CPR AED First Aid Safety class cover? Our CPR AED and First Aid classes cover emergency medical care for a variety of different emergencies and life saving techniques including: Legal/Ethical Concerns, Bloodborne Pathogens, Calling 911 and Emergency Medical Services, Scene Management and Patient Assessment, Bleeding, Cuts and Shock, Burns, Falls, Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Heart Attack, Drowning, Eye Injuries, Head and Face Injuries, Injuries to Muscles, Bones and Joints, Allergic Reactions and Respiratory Emergencies, Diabetic Emergencies, Seizures and Strokes, Heat Exhaustion and Hypothermia, Snake Bites, Bee Stings, Poisonings and Overdoses and a variety of other medical emergencies.
In addition to first aid treatment for medical emergencies what else do you cover? Our classes are student driven. By this I mean no 2 classes are alike. We encourage the students to talk about medical emergencies that they have seen either on the job or at home. We discuss proper treatment for these emergencies, what to do, and what not to do. We go through many different scenarios and we also stress accident prevention. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Often we discover safety concerns that management was unaware of. Through our classroom discussions, management is then able to take action to correct any safety issues.
How often should CPR and First Aid training occur? The old expression use it or lose it comes to mind. The American Heart Association CPR AED and First Aid certification cards are valid for a period of 2 years. Every 2 years may be sufficient for the actual training classes but safety drills, similar to the fire drills we had in school should be conducted on a regular basis. These drills apply what was learned in the classroom to real life scenarios that can occur on the job site.
What about a first aid kit? A good first aid kit is very important however it does not necessarily mean signing an expensive service contract to fill your first aid kit or wall mounted first aid cabinet with overpriced bandages and aspirin. In fact, I discourage having OTC medications in the company first aid kit. Keeping your first aid kit simple is often best. In addition to your PPE listed above you will want bandages, medical tape, burn gel, eye wash and an assortment of band aids in various sizes. The items you include in your first aid kit may vary depending on the size and number of job sites, what special hazards may be present and the number of construction workers at each site.
Should my company purchase an AED – Automated External Defibrillator? My answer is always “Yes”. This is especially true in the agricultural industry due to the distance from EMS – Emergency Medical Services. According to OSHA 13% of all workplace fatalities result from sudden cardiac arrest. According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest claims about 340,000 lives each year – or around 1,000 every day in the United States. Sudden cardiac arrest, which is the leading cause of death in the United States. Cardiac arrest kills more people than breast cancer, lung cancer, and AIDS combined. Currently 95 percent of all cardiac arrest victims die.
Simply put, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) save lives. Would you spend $2,000 if it saved an employee? The answer is obviously yes. You have smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, security cameras and other systems to save property why not put something in place that saves lives. Think about this, how many fire extinguishers does your company own? How many AEDs? Fire extinguishers are designed to save property whereas an AED saves lives. Life safety is far more important than saving property.
How much does an Automated External Defibrillator cost? I just delivered an AED in a waterproof carry case to a customer, the cost of the AED and waterproof case, delivered was just under $1,900. There are cheaper options but this customer wanted a good quality AED and did not want to cut corners on safety.
What does OSHA indicate about AEDs? "Because the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) can save the lives of workers who experience cardiac arrest while on the job, OSHA today encouraged employers to consider making this equipment available in their workplace." US Department of Labor, Office of Public Affairs, Dec. 17, 2001
What about Federal Laws regarding the use of AEDs? The Cardiac Arrest Survival Act (CASA) of 2000 is our nation's first legislation recognizing the lifesaving role played by automated external defibrillators (AEDs). The law highlights the need to make AEDs accessible to anyone who has had proper training, not just professional medical personnel. The law protects trained AED users from liability, and also protects any person who has maintained the device, provided training, tested the device or acquired it. The law also augments existing state "Good Samaritan" laws by ensuring federal liability protection for trained users and purchasers of AEDs.
What type of training is required to use an AED? AEDs are designed to be very simple to use. However, this is a race against time. For every minute we delay shocking our victim their chance of survival drops 10%. Training increases speed, confidence and efficiency. I suggest working with a professional trainer that has real life experience using CPR and AEDs on real people. An instructor that can work with your staff to answer any and all questions. Someone that can create realistic training scenarios to use during class and most importantly someone that can make your staff comfortable using their new skills. You don’t want an instructor that scares or confuses them. Look for a full time, insured professional that knows AEDs, CPR and First Aid.
Does The CPRSchool offer Bloodborne Pathogens HIV AIDS training? Yes. We often combine this class with our CPR AED class. Bloodborne Pathogens Training is an OSHA mandated training program for any person who may be "reasonably anticipated" to come into contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) as the result of performing their job duties. OSHA Bloodborne pathogens. - 1910.1030
What else can I do to improve the safety of my staff? Quick access to the proper PPE – Personal Protective Equipment is a must for your staff. Your PPE should include medical exam gloves, a CPR Mask, eye protection, biohazard bag and a face mask. These are relatively inexpensive and should be placed in an easy to reach location to allow quick retrieval for use in the event of a medical emergency.
Who needs Bloodborne Pathogens Training? Basically anyone that may be required to perform First Aid on an injured coworker.
