Forestry Workers First Aid

The forestry industry deals with unique hazards and high risk tasks which requires a niche set of skills when dealing with a first aid emergency.


Forestry Workers First Aid + Plus + Stop the Bleed

This course is tailored to the forestry industry, and will teach self and partner management of massive bleeds, fractures and sprains.  Techniques for littering and extraction, shock management/hypotermia are covered as well as providing a basis of emergency planning for individual circumstances.

When the risk of injuries from chainsaws, wire ropes and other equipment are high, you and your team need to know how to manage massive bleeds - every second counts, and having the skills and tools to act can be the difference between life and death.

As with all PracMed NZ courses, they are designed to be hands-on and engaging, with plenty of practical drills using state of the art trauma training aids to give the most realistic training on the market.  

All students are given brand new (in packet) gauze and bandages, because we know from experience that having every single step mapped out and practiced is the best way to learn - its surprising how hard it is to open packets under duress.

Our Trainers have extensive experience with the challenges of working remotely and have proven application in real first aid emergencies.  This, along with their ability to relate to the students, makes for a fun, engaging and empowering day where you and your team will gain confidence to act in a first aid emergency.
