Did you know that there were 158 fatal injuries to
workers in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector
in the last 5 years?
The QA Level 3 Award in Forestry First Aid +F (RQF)
qualification is ideal for those who work or intend to
work in a forestry, agricultural or remote environment,
such as tree surgeons and farmers.
Successful learners will be equipped with the knowledge
and practical skills needed to treat a range of injuries
and diseases that could occur in these environments,
such as Lyme disease and catastrophic bleeding.
Designed to accompany a regulated First Aid at Work
or Emergency First Aid at Work qualification, this
nationally recognised qualification has been specifically
developed to meet the recommendations of the
Forestry Commission First Aid at Work Policy.
