Forestry Emergency First Aid at Work

In line with the Health & Safety First Aid at Work Regulations 1981 and Forestry Commission, there is a requirement for employers to complete a First Aid needs assessment to ensure that they identify the need for an appropriately trained First Aider to be available at all times. Through this process it has been highlighted that there are several additional skills and knowledge areas required for occasional on-site work. This 8 hour qualification is proposed as a result of the 2009 guidance and LANTRA changes on assessing the needs of First Aid requirements in the workplace.

It will however not deal with medical conditions such as as diabetes, asthma, allergies or a heart condition, the HSE recommend that you consider completing a 3 day First Aid at Work course. This First Aid at Work initial qualification course covers a wider range of subjects.
