Course Description

This programme can be offered at either Basic (8 hours) or Intermediate (16 hours). Leading groups of people in remote areas, or participating in any outdoor activities can bring with it unknown hazards.  Common injuries sustained in the outdoors range from simple cuts and grazes to broken limbs, head and back injuries and hypothermia.  Being prepared to deal with any emergency should always form part of your emergency plan and you should be prepared to deal effectively with first aid related incidents when working in this environment. Delays in emergency service attendance times, lack of effective communication and difficulty in evacuation of casualties all present additional problems for the first aider when working in the outdoors.  The focus of the WorkSafe First Aid for Outdoor Activities programme is to address these issues.  Students receive training to provide first aid for longer periods than would be expected in more urban environments.
