Overview in Brief
If you work as a team in a forest setting, you’ll know there are special dangers to look out for. In the event of an emergency, you will need the necessary skills and training to keep you and your colleagues safe.
The Finer Details
This is a three day 1st Aid At Work + F training and assessment course. You’ll practice and learn the skills you need to be able to give first aid before the professionals take over.
Platinum Safety’s forestry First Aid course will build on your knowledge and understanding from the Emergency First Aid at Work and/or First Aid at Work courses and concentrate on the skills you need in the Forestry industry.
Platinum Safety’s course has been developed to comply with the Forestry Commission +F as per the First Aid at Work – Forestry Commission Policy and in consultation with Forestry Industry Safety Accord (FISA).
There will be assessment and a certificate of training, plus you will be given a workbook to keep handy as a useful reference guide.
