First Aid at work

Recommended Posts


I need to redo my first aid certificates as they appear to have lapsed by a few years :blushing: . Looking the changes in requirements from the FC I think that as a Supervisor / Harvester I require the 3 day First Aid at Work - FAW - and the additional add on to cover severe chainsaw cuts, crushing etc the +F part.


Firstly is this correct? secondly can anyone reccomend anywhere decent in the south east to do the FAW and the +F add on?

I think you only need the full 3day if your managing over 50people you should be ok on EFAW+F


This is the table from FC guidelines as you can see for harvesting ops where there are two people minimum you should have EFAW+F (1day) if you deem you need the FAW+F (3day) then its your decission, but my understanding is that for most forestry ops the 1day is sufficent as long as you have multiple qualified persons on site.
