Forestry First Aid Chainsaw

All of our standard workplace First Aid courses can be delivered in an Outdoor/Forestry context for remote sites so they’re completely purposeful.

The Forestry Commission recommends that Forestry and Arboriculture workers complete additional training in addition to the standard HSE compliant workplace First Aid courses. The additional training is specifically designed for people who work in remote environments with machinery.

These courses are also suitable for Forestry and Fencing Contractors, Stalking Contractors, Arborists/Tree Surgeons and anyone working on Forestry Commission land or rural contracts.
