Learn the essentials of First Aid for those who work at sea or on a vessel
CPD Certified Provider of Training Excellence Training Approved by Skills for Care

This one day course is tailored to a marine type workplace and will contain similar content that derives from the standard workplace first aid qualifications.

First aid at work for mariners involves providing immediate medical care to a person who has been injured or taken ill while at sea or working on a vessel. The primary goals of first aid are to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery.

Some common first aid procedures for mariners include:

  1. CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) - a life-saving procedure that involves chest compressions and rescue breathing.

  2. Dealing with bleeding - applying direct pressure to a wound, elevating the injured body part, and using a tourniquet if necessary.

  3. Treatment for burns - cooling the burned area with water, covering the wound with a sterile dressing, and seeking medical attention if the burn is severe.

  4. Dealing with shock - elevating the legs, keeping the person warm, and monitoring vital signs.

  5. Treatment for fractures - immobilising the injured area and seeking medical attention.

  6. Treatment for sea sickness - providing anti-nausea medication, fresh air, and fluids.

Mariners should receive training in first aid and CPR, and vessels should be equipped with first aid kits, medical supplies, and emergency communication devices to ensure that proper medical care can be administered in case of an emergency.
