Forestry First Aid

HSE Workplace First Aid guidelines apply to any workplace, both indoors and out.

Employers are required to provide comprehensive first aid cover for forestry workers such as arborists and tree surgeons in all situations and should be available to employees at all times.

HSE requires Forestry and Chainsaw workers to carry a personal First Aid Kit which includes a Large Wound Dressing in addition to having access to a more comprehensive First Aid Kit at all times.
