Description: This workbook has been written to accompany the video First Aid Series Part 1 – Elementary First Aid (STCW Code Section A-VI/1-3).
The video and workbook training package will assist with the underpinning knowledge of first aid but it is important to remember that first aid requires practical skills. This programme supports, but does not replace, statutory first aid training required by seafarers under the STCW code.
Ships can be hazardous places, and even with good safety procedures and well trained crews accidents and illnesses may happen at any time. The life of a fellow mariner or a passenger could depend on the help given in just such an emergency. Knowledge and practice of first aid could be the difference between life and death for a casualty.
This workbook details the basic immediate first aid that all seafarers need to be familiar with, and will have undertaken training in, to satisfy their first aid training requirements in accordance with the STCW Code (Section A -VI/1-3).
Officers on board will have received additional training and be more experienced in dealing with both first aid and medical care.
