Do you know what to do if someone gets hurt or becomes sick working in the woods? What steps could you take beforehand to make getting help for a woods emergency easier and faster? What should you do until help arrives?
Medical emergencies can happen at any time in the woods. For that reason, OSHA logging regulations require that all woods workers be trained in basic first aid and CPR.
In late May & early June, the Forest Alliance will hold two Preparing for Emergencies in the Woods workshops to help loggers, foresters and others who work in our woods be better prepared to deal with an emergency when they are working.
