So many people in the Land Based Industries find themselves working alone. It is the nature of the job and Agriculture, Forestry, Arboriculture and Estate Maintenance are big employers of people who are required to work in outlying areas and often for long periods of time on their own.
Did you know that in an emergency you can contact the emergency services using your mobile phone even if you don’t have a signal? By dialling 999 or 112, your mobile will connect to any network. It can also be used with pay as you go phones that have no credit on them. Not a lot of people know that so spread the word.
You should keep your phone within easy reach in your pocket and not in your vehicle or tractor. If you are unfortunate enough to have an accident while working alone you will then be able to summon help.
Newlands Training First Aid Courses are approved by the Forestry Commission for their sub- contractors and people working on their land, and our Certification can state that First Aid training has reflected the lone worker situation and the management of large wounds. This is reflected in the +F (Forestry) that appears on our certification if required.
We are just about to enter 2013 and we wish you all a happy, prosperous and most of all safe New Year in what is considered by many philosophies as a new Era. You know, the one that we are now in since we didn’t all expire at the end of the Mayan Calendar on 21st December!!    21st December 2012 marks the completion of the Great Mayan Cycle, and the beginning of a New World Age. I think this sounds like a great time to make some great, new personal resolutions and also some resolutions about training and safety in the workplace. See you in 2013.
