Tourniquets and Haemostatic Dressings

Following their introduction into the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) first aid guidelines, the HSE have now fully confirmed that haemostatic dressings and tourniquets can be included in workplace first aid training.

The HSE advises that when carrying out a first aid needs assessment, employers who identify a specific risk of life-threatening bleeding (e.g. those working in arboriculture, construction, glass work, agriculture or those who use dangerous machinery) should consider providing tourniquets and haemostatic dressings and ensure that their workplace first aiders are trained in their use.

Employers have to consider the use of these items when carrying out their first aid needs assessments. Where these are found to be required RemoteFirstAid can offer both training and the supply of high quality trauma dressings and tourniquets.

We can offer employers training in the use of these advanced skills within any of the first aid courses we deliver. Or alternatively our expert trainers can deliver bespoke training courses to your current first aiders at your site or venue. For a no nonsense chat drop us a line and our training manager will call you back to discuss your first aiders training needs.
