As a leader, you must be attuned to the safety of your followers. It’s hard to protect them from each and every threat–physical and psychological–but you can take measures to reduce the risk of fatal heart attacks. Here’s how:
1) Inform your employees that taking a small baby aspirin a day will decrease their risk of heart attack by stopping the formation of clots that block blood flow to the heart. There are benefits and risks to understand.
2) Make an Automated ExternalDefibrillator available on premises in case an employee has a heart attack. The price of these have come down to $1,200.
3) Share the New CPR protocol with all your employees. Learn Continuous Chest Compression CPR from Gordon A. Ewy, MD, and Karl Kern, MD, the physician researchers who developed this new approach to CPR. This replaces the traditional Mouth to Mouth Resuscitation and CPR method.
What would you do differently if you increased safety as part of your leadership to your organization?
