This course is one of our most practical, which given our attitude to training says a lot. Youl will see live demonstrations for chainsaw injury, you will understand blood loss and be capable of providing immediate aid using modern and advanced techniques in the right way, at the right time.
This course will not try to convince you that chainsaw injury happens daily or that you need massive risk assessments and expensive first aid kits it is simply about updating your skills above and beyond the basic first aid you are used to. We will not cover CPR, choking, recovery position or other stuff that you’ve already been taught – this is purely and simply about new techniques, new confidence and being better.
This course can sometimes be ‘bolted on’ to other training – ask for details.
This course can be held for a group at your own workplace and discounts apply – contact our team for details.
