EFAW (+F) Forestry First Aid.
LEVEL 3 | DURATION: 2 HOURS | MEETS FORESTRY COMMISSION RECOMMENDATIONS
Did you know that there were 158 fatal injuries to workers in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector in the last 5 years? For this reason, forestry first aid courses are extremely important.
The QA Level 3 Award in Forestry First Aid +F (RQF) qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to work in a forestry, agricultural or remote environment, such as tree surgeons and farmers.
Successful learners will be equipped with the knowledge and practical skills needed to treat a range of injuries and diseases that could occur in these environments, such as Lyme disease and catastrophic bleeding.
Designed to accompany a regulated First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work qualification, this is one of the nationally recognised Forestry First Aid Courses which has been specifically developed to meet the recommendations of the Forestry Commission First Aid at Work Policy.
