This module is designed to meet the requirements of the Forestry Commission Policy for those that work on their land. It is also suitable for ALL chainsaw operators.
It is a 'bolt-on' 2-hour unit with the exact time depending upon the content of the first aid qualification it is added to. For example, EFAW is a 1-day 6-hour course and FAW is a 3-day 18-hour course.
Relevant extracts from the policy document:
16. “+F” training. Working with the principle of matching skills to your possible accidents/illnesses, those working in core operations will require training that has been delivered with a forestry context (ie sites remote from medical aid and where limited help will be available). This training is referred to in this guidance as EFAW+F or FAW+F. The term “+F” may not be widely recognised. Core operations mean; harvesting, civil engineering, mechanised ground preparation, planting, fencing, pesticide application, forest nursery activities, or similar. It includes any lone workers or site supervisors.
17. They may also need add-on elements for our special hazards (eg severe chainsaw cuts, crush injuries, hypothermia, Lyme disease).
18. “+F” will be recognised when “forestry context” or “remote sites” or “+F” is noted on the certificate or supporting correspondence.
