Forestry First Aid Training
Recent changes to Forestry Commission policy recommend those who work in the Forestry industry attend training which includes additional topics relevant to the risks and nature or their work.

The Forestry Commission recommend topics including:

Severe bleeding (i.e. chainsaw injury)
Crush injury
Hypothermia
Lymes Disease

These topics are to be covered in addition to the standard first aid syllabus, therefore  any first aid course incorporating the additional Forestry + F subjects may run up to one and a half hours longer than the recommended 6 hours for the emergency first aid at work course and about one hour longer than the recommended 3 day (18hour) first aid at work course.

However, we do a two day outdoor first aid course, aimed specifically at those who work in the outdoors, including forestry. This will include the recommended additional forestry + F subjects if specified. This will be included in the two day (12Hour) programme.

As the above information is guidance rather than legislation, we are happy to work with customers to provide bespoke training which meets their needs but it should be noted that the above topics would realistically require at least an additional hour of contact time.

If your First Aid Needs Analysis suggests more training beyond EFAW+F due to the remote nature of your work, we would recommend the 2 Day Emergency First Aid course; a practical, basic course designed specifically for those who work in remote or higher hazard environments.

Certification 
The EFA and FAW syllabus are controlled by the Health & Safety Executive and certification is through the Awarding Body (in our case, Remote Emergency Care).

The Forestry Commission policy does not have the authority to impose changes to the syllabi and as no such EFAW+F or FAW+F formally exists, no Awarding Body can issue such a certificates.

As such, following additional training in the recommended topics, candidate will receive a letter of confirmation to that effect in addition to their conventional EFAW or FAW certificate.

EFAW+F and FAW+F are delivered at no extra cost to the standard EFAW and FAW courses.
