The Catastrophic Bleeding Workshop is designed specifically for first aiders from organisations that operate in high risk industries and have decided to store tourniquets and/or haemostatic dressings in their first aid kits. The Catastrophic Bleeding Workshop will give the learners with the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence on how to apply a tourniquet and haemostatic dressings.


This session can be added to any First Aid at Work or Emergency First Aid at Work Course, although additional time will be required. We would strongly recommend this for any business working in an environment where amputation or catastrophic bleeding could be a realistic risk due to the work activities. Please talk with a member of our team to discuss this.
