  • PGI Training offers a variety of bespoke Emergency and Trauma Training

    Emergency Response and Trauma Training

    Exploitation of offshore hydrocarbon resources is

    inherently hazardous and requires the application of

    significant effort to manage health and safety risks and

    achieve appropriate standards of health and safety

    performance.

    In addition, HSE performance measures are becoming

    increasingly stringent and it is up to companies to ensure

    that they meet these requirements year on year to

    minimise the risks to their employees.

    PGI considers the HSE risks and the inevitability of

    workplace incidents arising throughout the development

    process of our courses. Our aim is to provide the

    knowledge, tools, and confidence for those at

    operational and managerial levels to positively deal with

    such events.

    Our suite of training courses and services will provide

    you, your teams, and your clients with the confidence

    and credentials required to maintain effective business

    continuity whilst upholding the highest levels of health

    and safety at all times.

    We aim to do more than just impart knowledge; PGI

    seeks to deliver functional training that takes into

    consideration the unique operating procedures your

    organisation faces on a daily basis, and then tailor the

    syllabus to suit you.

    Our Emergency Response Training (ERT) is delivered by a

    faculty that boasts a unique combination of medical

    professionals which includes Critical Care Practitioners,

    UKSF Paramedics, Remote Medics, and First Responders.

    Combined, these trainers work together with your teams

    to hand-pick the appropriate elements from our range of

    existing courses and adapt them accordingly to the

    target audience. (See Annex A)

    To enhance the in-class theory element of the training, a

    kinaesthetic approach is applied, which provides

    delegates with the opportunity to put into practice the

    new skills learnt. The range of practical scenarios we

    provide are designed to correspond with what has been

    learnt and provide delegates with the tools, skills, and

    confidence to respond effectively in real life situations.

    PGI is able to deliver courses at our main centres in

    Greater Manchester, Bristol, and Tiverton; however, we

    realise that maximum effectiveness occurs at client

    locations or in areas nearer to operational hubs and

    hence also offer on-site training where applicable.

    Introduction

    1

  • Emergency Response and Trauma Training

    The Three Day TFR course has been refined and adapted

    following a number of training packages conducted for the

    Offshore Hydrocarbon industry. Through this process it has

    been identified that encompassing the medical elements of

    the HSE offshore first aid course in support of the trauma

    syllabus will provide advanced technical medical

    capabilities for those who would carry out medical services

    as either a primary, or secondary function.

    The Trauma First Response is a continuing education course

    that teaches the principles of Pre-Hospital Trauma Life

    Support (PHTLS) to non-EMS practitioners. The course serves

    up the core PHTLS content to those who havent had

    Emergency Medical Training or advanced Pre-Hospital

    training.

    The lectures and practical stations are designed to replicate

    the type of care first responders are able to apply while

    awaiting patient transport or when assisting paramedics and

    EMTs at a trauma scene.

    Training The course is designed to enable the student to effectively care for trauma patients when serving as

    part of a transport team or awaiting a transport

    provider.

    The course covers scene assessment, establishing

    patient history, and physical examinations to

    systematically manage life-threatening situations.

    Modules will involve interactive skill stations, real-life

    scenarios, lectures, and assessments.

    The learning outcomes are mapped against both the

    Trauma First Response and HSE offshore First Aid

    course and include:

    Understanding the role of the first aider

    Understanding the importance of preventing

    cross infection

    The need for recording incidents and actions

    and correct use of available equipment

    The need for recording incidents and actions

    and correct use of available equipment

    How to assess the situation and circumstances in

    order to act safely, promptly, and effectively in

    an emergency

    How to administer cardiopulmonary

    resuscitation, including the use of automated

    external defibrillators, maintenance of manual

    resuscitators, manual suction devices, oro and

    naso pharyngeal airways and oxygen supplies

    How to administer first aid to a casualty who is

    bleeding and casualties who are unconscious

    How to recognise the presence of major illness

    and provide appropriate care to those suffering

    heart attacks, strokes, epilepsy, asthma, and

    diabetes

    How to administer first aid to a casualty who is

    suffering from shock, hyper and hypothermia,

    effects of immersion, poisons encountered

    offshore

    How to administer first aid to those with injury

    including dressing, immobilisation of injured

    parts which include eyes, burns/scalding,

    inhalation of hot gasses and smoke

    How to recognise minor injuries and illnesses

    and take appropriate action

  • Emergency Response and Trauma Training

    How to transport sick and injured patients safely and

    effectively

    Understand the technicalities and difficulties of

    transporting patients by helicopter, the management

    of a patient during flight and the need for stabilisation

    of the casualty before flight

    How to recognise situations in which it is appropriate

    to use Entonox for the relief of pain and to administer

    Entonox safely and effectively

    How to communicate and delegate promptly and

    effectively in an emergency.

    The Five Day First Person On Scene/Trauma First

    Response package give the employer the opportunity

    upscale their emergency response capability by building

    on prior training and experience of their personnel. The

    five day package allows for the non-medical professional

    to conduct their primary role with the ability switch roles

    to medical response.

    Figure 2 Differing Medical Conditions Delegates will work in teams to respond to multiple patients with different medical conditions.

    The course delivery is divided into both theoretical

    and practical sessions, which allows for the student to

    develop into a competent First Responder. The key

    learning outcomes of this course are as follows:

    The Pre-Hospital Environment

    Patient Assessment

    Management of catastrophic haemorrhage

    Airway Management (OPA, NPA, I Gel and BVM)

    Figure 3 Realistic Scenarios Delegates will experience medical situations that resemble actual emergencies to ensure an authentic learning environment,

  • Emergency Response and Trauma Training

    Elements of the TFR are incorporated into this syllabus and

    the final day culminates in a series of practical scenarios

    relevant to the delegates working environment. Scenarios

    test all elements of the FPOSI and TFR syllabus and

    companies and delegates are encouraged to utilise

    equipment and PPE that they would use in their day to

    jobs.

    Amputee Actors

    To support the delivery of the scenario exercises we will

    use the excellent services of amputee actors that have lost

    limbs as a direct result of a trauma incident, and are able

    to draw on their own experiences to further enhance the

    scenarios with unique insight and acting in the field,

    remaining in character throughout.

    Delegates will experience the effects and management of

    trauma incidents in the most realistic way possible. The

    special effects used enhance the experience, replicating

    injuries beyond leg and arm injuries, recreating traumas

    like head and facial wounds and eviscerated abdomens

    and groin wounds.

    Figure 4 Amputee Actors At PGI Training, we employ amputee actors who are experienced in supporting the delivery of realistic medical trauma scenario training.

    Medical Field Guides

    PGI have created a 70 page Xerox Nevertear medics

    field guide that has become popular across a

    number of business sectors. This A6 water proof and

    tear proof aide has been adopted by many medics

    into their trauma equipment and includes a detailed

    but easy to navigate memoir to maintain, refresh,

    and utilise on a daily basis. Contents include but are

    not limited to:

    Initial assessment

    Primary survey

    Catastrophic haemorrhage

    Airway, oxygen and C-spine injury

    Breathing and ventilation

    Circulation and haemorrhage control

    Burns

    Disability (head injury)

    Environment

    Cardiac emergencies

    Medical emergencies

    Bites and stings

    Triage

    Prolonged field care

    Medications

    Handover details

    ATMIST reporting

    The guide is scrupulous in design but the team are

    flexible enough to allow for independent

    organisations SOPS to be adapted into it, ensuring

    that it falls in line with best management practices

    and remains relevant to the operator. This will also

    be branded accordingly, for example including a

    bespoke front page so that it is effectively perceived

    as company handbook and thus fully incorporated

    into daily use.
