First Aid for Agriculture

Agriculture is a high risk occupation where workers are exposed to a wide range of potentially very serious and occasionally life threatening injuries. People within the sector routinely work with animals, heavy machinery, chemicals, poisons and perhaps firearms in locations that are rural or remote. They also regularly work long hours in poor weather conditions and during the hours of darkness all of which are factors which may exacerbate first aid incidents. As many farms are family businesses this adds to the stress of a first aid incident as it potentially involves family members and friends.

First Aiders with the agriculture industry must be prepared to deal with potentially very serious injuries and to manage them for prolonged periods of time whilst waiting for the emergency services.

Our agriculture specific courses are tailored to the requirements of the industry and delivered by trainers with farming experience.
