Great today working alongside Nick and James from Gristwood and Toms at the head office at Shenley, Hertfordshire.
As well as training them in Forestry First Aid we are being cross trained in Basic Tree Climbing / Aerial Rescue an important skill to have but not only that it gives us at MSI an insight into how the Arborist Industry deals with a casualty whilst they are up a tree.
This morning was spent looking at :
Calling In Emergency Services ( including a HLS)
Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998.
Provision Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
Inspection of climbing equipment.
Unconscious casualty in a tree.
Planning of a rescue.
Extraction of the casualty.
The afternoon was spent learning the practical element of tree climbing of which if you have never done it before it is really hard work using different muscles in the body!!! Big thanks to Nick and James for their excellent training and sharing their extensive knowledge and experiences.
Looking forward to tomorrow to looking at different techniques in aerial rescue, especially as it's currently snowing heavily!!! Lol
