Basic Skills Refresher + F

4 hours

All workplaces need to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and first-aiders to help if a member of staff has an accident or falls ill at work. It’s the Law. Plus, you also have a duty of care towards all visitors. However, First Aid skills and confidence fade so the Health & Safety Executive strongly recommend that qualified workplace first-aiders complete a Basic Skills Refresher course annually.

  • This short 4 hour course is designed to refresh the skills you need to deal with life threatening emergencies in a Forestry context. We’ll come to your workplace, with all the equipment required, at a time that suits you.

  • Qualified + F first-aiders that would like to refresh their skills.

  • Incident management, unconscious casualties, recovery position, CPR and safe use of a defibrillator. Additional topics recommended by the Forestry Commission:

    • Severe bleeding (i.e. chainsaw injury)
    • Crush injury
    • Hypothermia
    • Lyme disease

    If you need us to cover any additional topics then just let us know.

  • This is a relaxed awareness course – there is no formal assessment.

  • This is an active and practical course that involves rolling around on the floor and some occasional close contact with another learner. Learners need to take a full and active part and comply with our Covid-19 mitigation measures. Please contact us prior to the course starting if you require a reasonable adjustment.
