Outdoor and Adventure Activities

The outdoor and adventure industry relies on physical and mental health first aid training from Madeleys First Aid Plus for several crucial reasons:

  1. Remote Locations: Outdoor and adventure activities often take place in remote and challenging environments where immediate access to medical facilities may be limited. Physical first aid training equips outdoor and adventure professionals with the skills to provide initial care and stabilize injuries or illnesses until advanced medical help arrives. This training is vital in ensuring the safety and well-being of participants in outdoor activities.
  2. Sports and Adventure Injuries: Outdoor and adventure activities involve various physical challenges, such as hiking, rock climbing, water sports, or extreme sports. These activities carry inherent risks of injuries, including fractures, sprains, dislocations, or head injuries. Physical first aid training prepares professionals to assess and manage these types of injuries effectively, ensuring prompt and appropriate care.
  3. Environmental Hazards: The outdoor and adventure industry exposes participants to environmental hazards, including extreme weather conditions, heatstroke, hypothermia, insect bites, or allergic reactions. Physical first aid training educates professionals on recognizing the signs and symptoms of these hazards, providing immediate care, and implementing preventive measures to mitigate risks.
  4. Equipment and Gear Safety: Outdoor and adventure activities often require the use of specialized equipment and gear, such as ropes, harnesses, helmets, or safety devices. Physical first aid training ensures professionals have the knowledge and skills to inspect, maintain, and use this equipment safely. They can identify potential hazards, address equipment failures, and prevent accidents or injuries caused by faulty gear.
  5. Mental Health Support in Outdoor Settings: Engaging in outdoor and adventure activities can have a significant impact on mental well-being. However, participants may encounter challenging situations that trigger anxiety, fear, or stress. Mental health first aid training equips outdoor and adventure professionals with the skills to recognise signs of mental distress, provide initial support, and refer participants to appropriate resources for further assistance. This training promotes mental well-being and ensures a positive and safe experience for participants.
  6. Risk Assessment and Emergency Preparedness: Outdoor and adventure professionals need to be skilled in risk assessment and emergency preparedness. Physical and mental health first aid training provides them with the ability to identify potential hazards, evaluate risks, and develop appropriate safety protocols and emergency response plans. This training enhances their ability to prevent accidents, respond effectively to emergencies, and ensure the well-being of participants.
  7. Teamwork and Communication: Effective teamwork and communication are essential in the outdoor and adventure industry, where professionals often work in groups or lead teams of participants. Physical and mental health first aid training fosters communication skills, collaboration, and mutual support among professionals, enhancing their ability to handle emergencies, coordinate rescue efforts, and create a safe and positive outdoor experience.

By providing physical and mental health first aid training, Madeleys First Aid Plus supports the outdoor and adventure industry in creating a safe and responsible environment for participants. This training equips professionals with the skills to handle emergencies, ensure participant safety, promote mental well-being, and contribute to the overall success of outdoor and adventure activities.

Our Courses

Voices of Trust and Success

I can’t believe how much I learned about mental health in just one day. The course is really interesting and very informative - Lou teaches in a way that enables plenty of interaction and discussion between the learners, breaking down any stigma people may have about talking about mental health issues. I now think very differently about how a person may be thinking or feeling, and I am mindful of their words and actions and how it could be a warning sign or a cry for help. Being a mental health first aider means I could make a difference to someone who is struggling. That is a massive and personal thing to me.

First Aid for Mental Health

Audrey Whyle, ArtShack

I have been singing her praises and we're already booked in for our First Aid at work and safeguarding training.

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable People

Fearless Female Education Ltd

An excellent course that was informative and well taught. Louise did a brilliant job of explaining all areas of First Aid-what we needed to do and why which massively helped the learning experience and my ability to retain life saving information. I would highly recommend this course.

Emergency First Aid at Work

Katie Iles, The SeaChange Trust

From the start to finish Louise was informative, practical and interesting. With her extensive background and experience within the medical industry including A an E, she was able to pitch real scenarios at us regardless of the nature of our business or employment which made the whole day much more relevant. Very Highly recommended to anyone either refreshing or starting First Aid for the first time and I wouldn't hesitate to offer her and Madeleys First Aid Plus services to anyone who needs First Aid qualifications.

First Aid at Work

Phil Rowley, Rowley Racing

Louise came highly recommended for Mental Health First Aid training and after a chat with her, I quickly realised she was definitely the right fit for me and my team. Louise was efficient, patient (7 rather chatty women), friendly and tremendously knowledgable which made the course one of the best training sessions I have ever been on. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and nearly three weeks later, we are still talking about the training and more importantly, putting it into practice. I feel fortunate to have found someone who understood our needs and could deliver so effectively to such a diverse team. Keeping everyone's interest and getting all of us engaged is no meant feat and Lou made it look easy.

I am more confident to help if ever needed, who knew there was a “best side” for the recovery position! Very good information regarding the use of the defib machine, I’d be confident to use it if ever needed!
