At Microtech, the health of our employees is of paramount importance to the company and therefore we have taken the precaution of purchasing an automated external defibrillator (AED).

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable life saving device that can give a casualty’s heart an electric shock when it has stopped beating, normally in a sudden cardiac arrest. Once the defibrillator pads are placed on their chest it works by checking the casualty’s heart rhythm and administers them a shock, if needed.

By using a defibrillator before an ambulance arrives, you can significantly increase someone’s chance of survival

It has been installed in our reception area and we have trained numerous personnel on how to use it.

We sincerely hope it never gets to be used .
