About the Petition

This is 82 families each day losing a loved one – it could be a mother, father, grandparent, daughter or son. 41 hearts, 41 tragedies every single day.

Most of these deaths are completely preventable. If only an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) was within reach.

That’s why the Australian Hearts campaign is calling on the community, business and government to work together.

We want to see an Australia where, if a friend or workmate suffers sudden cardiac arrest, you’ll be able to find an AED within 3 minutes. We know if it can be done that fast, your friend has a real chance of making a full recovery.

Improved access to AEDs isn’t just a good idea. It will ensure everyone gets a second chance at life.

Show some heart, sign the petition to demand AEDs be mandatory in every workplace.

We are all in this together, so let’s send a message to our decision-makers to mandate the use of AEDs in Australian workplaces because we need to see AEDs within 3 minutes of 90 percent of Australians.

With 82 tragedies every day in Australia, let’s all help drive the change.

5,000 signups for AEDs in our workplaces

Over 1,500 people have already signed up. Our aim is now for 5,000 petitions. Sign up now so yours can still count. It’s time to show how much we care about the lives that AED can save are; to implore those in legislation to make AEDs only 3 min away from anyone needing one.
