Working Scottish Woodlands to develop their remote casualty evacuation plans for remote sites in Glen Etive and Glendessary.
Both had unique challenges due to limited communications and the remoteness of the sites. Working along side the Scottish woodlands health and safety officers we were able to highlight the correct level of first aid equipment and the appropriate communication devises appropriate to the sites. Based on the challenges at each of the sites we produced a detail casualty evacuation plan based on the requirements of Afag 802 now superseded by the new Site management recommendations
