Our Course

Our Farmer Medical Emergency Course is the first course in Australia that has been specifically designed for workers in agriculture. It covers the biggest risk injuries that may be encountered on a farm. The course will provide participants with invaluable information, demonstrations and realistic scenarios about implementing life-saving techniques that are just not taught in first aid courses. Our course will be delivered to you by one of our highly experienced Isolated Practice Paramedics that have dealt with numerous traumatic injuries and illnesses that have occurred on farms.

What will I learn?

The Farmer Medical Emergency Course will give you the confidence and skills in providing an emergency medical response, life support and management of a casualty(s) until the arrival of medical or other assistance.

Elements you will learn are:

  • Calling 000/RFDS, RFDS Medical Chests,
  • Critical Emergency Kit demonstration and education
  • Basic Life Support (DRSABCD)
  • Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and AED scenario training
  • Drowning
  • Amputation and Severe Bleeding – use of tourniquets
  • Burns and Scalds
  • Poisons and Toxic Substances
  • Snake Bite treatment
  • Spinal Injuries – Falls from height & Helmet removal

Why should I do this course?

Because a farm safety report card compiled by Sydney University shows there were 68 farm deaths reported by the Australian media in 2017, which is a slight rise from 63 in 2016. This is far too many deaths and most of these deaths were preventable!

The research, by the university’s Australian Centre for Agricultural Health and Safety, showed tractors (13) and quad bikes (11) were the leading causes of death, making up more than 40 percent of the total. Tragically, nine of the fatal cases (13 percent) involved children aged under 15 years, with quad bikes involved in a third of these incidents.
