In response, the IAH Safety Advocates have begun exploring the possibility of offering CPR classes to ramp agents. These classes would allow participants to obtain the kind of CPR training that could make a huge difference in an emergency.
The Safety team may be able to arrange for OSHA compliant CPR training that will help ramp agents keep their families, coworkers and everyone around them safe. These classes would be completely voluntary, and participants could potentially be awarded valid CPR certification upon completion. The classes would not be part of any United Airlines training program, and attendees could use their certifications for other jobs, such as education, life guard or fire department work.
So, what do you think? Is CPR training something that you would be interested in? If there is adequate demand for CPR training, Safety Advocates may be able to arrange annual training classes for ramp agents. If you think that you or a member of your family might benefit from CPR training, please fill out the quick survey below, or send us an email.
We look forward to hearing what you think.
