SCQF LEVEL 6

ITC Certificate in Emergency First Aid at Work + Forestry 7 hours

This course is designed for those working in core operations in a forestry context such as harvesting, civil engineering, mechanized ground preparation, planting, fencing, pesticide application, forest nursery activities or similar. It includes any lone workers or site supervisors.

The course is a standard Emergency First Aid at Work with an add-on element for forestry specific hazards

  • Severe chainsaw cuts
  • Crush injuries
  • Hypothermia
  • Lyme disease

First aiders involved in non-core operations will need a valid EFAW or FAW certificate. The +F element can be seen as desirable for non-core.

“+F” will be recognised when “forestry context” or “remote sites” or “+F” is noted on certificate or supporting correspondence.

Refreshing training within the 3 years. The Forestry Commission supports the HSE recommendation that first aiders undertake annual refresher training in addition to 3-yearly requalification training. This will help first aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up-to-date with any changes to first aid procedures.
