Event description

Description

This is a one day course- Emergency First Aid at Work (Forestry Specific) held at Brockenhurst College.

If a First Aider is not legally required, an employer must still appoint a person to take charge of first aid provision, and this course provides that person with the necessary knowledge to do so. This course is ideal for individuals, lone workers or employees of smaller low risk organisations.

This course covers the basics of first aid according to the first aid regulations, specifically it will cover:

  • Assessing the casualty
  • Unconsciousness
  • Injuries to bones, muscles and joints
  • Eye injuries
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Client specific subjects including diabetes, epilepsy, allergic reactions etc.
  • CPR Wounds and bleeding
  • Burns and scalds
  • Shock management
  • Exposure to cold and heat
  • Illness assessment

Additional topics (Forestry specific):

  • Severe bleeding (i.e chainsaw injury)
  • Crush injury
  • Hypothermia
  • Lyme Disease
  • Suspension injuries

You will need to bring a pen and a notepad, a comprehensive visual handbook and Emergency Reference Manual is supplied and will cover all the information necessary. Students should also wear comfortable clothing and trousers are advisable. Refreshments are provided, but students are asked to bring their own packed lunch.
