What Bill 141 means for owners of designated public areas
Unfortunately, each year approximately 7,000 Ontarians will experience cardiac arrest. Up to 85% of those cardiac arrests occur in a public location or within their homes. A family member, friend or a colleague is usually there to witness the cardiac arrest. The startling statistic is 9 out of 10 people that have a cardiac arrest will not survive if they are not within a hospital. A defibrillator can greatly improve cardiac arrest survival rates by more than 70% when done along with CPR. Making sure AED units are rescue ready and available to members of the public, can help to have a successful outcome for a cardiac arrest.
Bill 141 Includes:
- AED units are required in public premises
- AED units are required to be visible when installed in these locations
- AED units are required to have appropriate signage
- AED units are required to be maintained and tested by someone to ensure they are rescue ready in case of emergency
- AED units are required to be tested or to be able to provide records that self-tests have been done on the unit
- AED units are required to be registered with 9-1-1
- AED training is required by all locations who will have an AED on site.
