Forestry Emergency First Aid

This course is suitable for any candidate looking to gain the Forestry Emergency First Aid certificate. This EFAW+F course is based on the recommendations from the Forestry Commission,

17. Working with the principle of matching skills to your possible accidents/illnesses, for those working out on sites we recommend Managers/contractors source training that can be delivered with a forestry context (ie sites remote from medical aid and where limited help will be available).

With the above in mind, taken from the First Aid at Work – Forestry Commission Policy, Ascent First Aid has set out a course that would be relevant to those working in a Forestry environment where they will not always be easily accessible to emergency services.

For: Companies and groups looking to gain the 1 day Emergency First Aid at Work course with Forestry within their working environment. Great if you need members of staff trained up in a 1 day course suitable to their forestry working environment.

Course timings: 1 day course. 8 hours + contact. 9.00am-6.00pm (inc. breaks and lunch)
