February is American Heart Month, which brings a great opportunity to educate your entire team on how to be more aware of heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Over the coming weeks, we’ll share a number of articles to help you lower your risk of heart disease by eating better, lowering your blood pressure, exercising and making the types of positive changes that puts your health as priority #1. We’ll also communicate some of the great things you can implement in your work environment so that your team is put in a healthier place. After all, it’s no secret that work can do a serious number of your heart and health in general if you aren’t taking the proper precautions. Your eating can slide (hello, vending machine full of chips and cookies). Your stress levels can skyrocket. You can work away at your desk for hours without walking around. And all of these things can pile up on top of one another, creating a health problem that you can’t just shake off.
American Heart Month is also a time to get your workplace more mindful and proactive about what to do in an emergency, such as a co-worker collapsing due to a heart condition such as sudden cardiac arrest. To that end, you’ll want to take advantage of the February Training Special made especially for American Heart Month, which supplies your team with a complete slate of important steps to take to perform CPR and operate an AED – all at a discounted rate and all in just a few hours.
