Farmers First Aid
Agriculture has one of the worst fatal accident and occupational ill-health records of any major employment sector. In 2010 to 2011 the HSE reported that 42 people were killed as a result of farming and other agriculture related injuries during the year. Less than 1.5% of the UK's working population are employed in the agriculture sector yet the sector is responsible for between 15 and 20% of all work place fatalities each year.
It is these shocking figures that prompted St John Wales to develop a first aid course specifically for farmers that deals with the most common types of injuries that occur in the agriculture sector.
Who it is for:
Those working in the farming and agricultural industry.
What you will learn:
- Incident Management
- Treatment of an unresponsive casualty
- Severe bleeding
- The treatment of lacerations, puncture wounds and amputations
- Treating a crushed casualty
- Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
- Burns and scalds, including Chemical burns
There is no formal assessment on this course. Students are continually assessed by our highly experienced St John trainers.
All successful delegates will receive a St John Wales certificate, valid for 3 years.
