Moxie Media’s Maritime First Aid Training
Mariners and maritime workers enjoy the freedom of working on the open water, away from the conventional stresses of working on land. But the maritime industry has its own unique hazards that threaten the safety of everyone on board. This makes maritime first aid training a crucial step in keeping every crew member safe.
Maritime workers must be responsible not only for their own safety, but also for the safety of their fellow crew members. Likewise, maritime employers have a duty to invest in the best maritime first aid courses for their crews. Moxie Media’s training course is designed specifically for this industry to teach hazard awareness, prevention, and first aid for mariners and maritime workers.
Our maritime first aid training provides crew members with the knowledge and awareness to take immediate action upon encountering an accident or other medical emergency. This training is ideal for complying with the AWO RCP and STCW guidelines.
Unlike some other maritime first aid courses, Moxie Media’s training program was shot on location aboard vessels. This enables us to show first aid for mariners in action, leading to higher student engagement and better learning outcomes. Our training emphasizes first aid for injuries and illnesses typical of a workboat environment, preparing your crew to face the biggest dangers of the maritime industry.
Preparing with Maritime First Aid Courses
Moxie Media’s maritime first aid training is broken down into three main parts:
- Injury and Illness Awareness
- Injury and Illness Prevention
- Injury and Illness Response
When crew members are aware of the dangers they face, they are better equipped to prevent and respond to hazards. From mopping to handling rigging equipment, each duty on board a maritime vessel presents certain hazards. We teach mariners and maritime workers the practice of hazard awareness as the first step in preventing accidents and other medical emergencies.
Although important, hazard awareness and prevention aren’t the only ways to avoid catastrophes. Even if workers are aware of potential hazards and practice safety procedures to reduce these threats, it is still possible that injury or illness will occur. This is where our training on first aid for mariners and maritime workers comes into play.
In the event of a medical emergency aboard a workboat, the first responder usually isn’t a doctor or a trained professional. It’s typically a fellow crew member. Moxie Media’s maritime first aid course teaches workers emergency response and how to administer effective first aid.
On a maritime vessel, the effectiveness of your response and first aid could mean the difference between life and death. That’s why learning the ins-and-outs of maritime first aid is of the utmost importance. However, some maritime first aid courses focus solely on emergency response, to the exclusion of hazard awareness and prevention. At Moxie Media, we provide comprehensive maritime first aid training to keep your crew as safe as possible.
Types of First Aid for Mariners and Maritime Workers
The type of first aid you administer depends entirely on the medical emergency you’re responding to. That’s why our maritime first aid course covers the following scenarios:
- Spinal injury
- Severe bleeding
- Wound care
- Broken bones
- Heart attack
- Foreign body airway obstruction
- Bloodborne pathogens and infections
- Acute abdominal pain or discomfort
- Eye injury
- Dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke
- Frostbite and hypothermia
- Transferring an injured person
After completing Moxie Media’s first aid for mariners program, workers will have the tools they need to administer first aid in a wide variety of situations. This thorough preparation makes every crew member that much safer on the job.
