BrightView team members CPR training
More than 1,000 BrightView team members have been trained in First Aid and CPR since October 2022.

Did you know? Each day, 1,000 Americans experience sudden cardiac arrest. According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, only 10 percent of these people survive.

At BrightView Landscapes, our greatest asset is our employees. In addition to equipping team members with the skills and resources needed to safely perform your job safely, we are committed to providing the training to assist fellow employees and customers and community members, should medical assistance be required. In support of this endeavor, the Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) team regularly coordinates First Aid and CPR training events across the country.

Since October 2022, nearly 1,000 BrightView employees have been trained in First Aid and CPR and we currently have more than 35 American Red Cross-certified First Aid and CPR instructors on our EHS and Branch Management teams.

“Our goal is to have all Branch leadership members and crew leaders trained in First Aid/CPR,” said Holly Woonton, BrightView’s Vice President, Environmental Health & Safety. “This is important life-saving training, and within BrightView, there are dozens of instances where team members have used their training to come to the rescue of their coworkers and community members suffering a cardiac or life-threatening emergency.”

At the conclusion of the half-day course, team members will know how to:

  • Perform CPR on someone who is in cardiac arrest
  • Properly use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Administer First Aid to someone who is injured
  • Assist someone who is choking
  • Render assistance with Narcan and Epinephrine
