Places of application
AED, as you must be aware, is a portable device that generates electric shocks which can help in restoring the normal rhythm of a failing heart. Hence, this machine must be quite easily approachable in the premise. Also, one needs to make the way to the device most visible and confusion-free. AED signs, therefore, should be pasted at multiple locations on the premises to help reach the device quickest possible and buy more time to save a life.

In one of the previous posts, we have included printables of medical importance like emergency cards templates. Adding a new leaf to that series, we have designed AED signs. Though you can find several types of AED signs, here we have covered these designs keeping the requirement of simplicity and clarity in mind.

- AED sign printable with white background: This design is more elaborate with white background. Also, AED initials are expanded to its full form to convey the purpose most crisply and correctly.
Depending upon the area’s dimensions where it is to be pasted or hung, you can pick from any of these designs and make the premise OSHA compliant.
