Why is Technical Rope and Rescue Training important?
Occupational Health and Safety legislation states that anytime work is being done in a confined space or work is being carried out at height situations, an ”effective” rescue plan is required. Contacting ”911″ is not normally considered a sufficient rescue plan as the responding services may not have the training or equipment to deal with your “site-specific” hazards. Having a specially trained and equipped rescue team that is capable of responding to rescue situations based on your site hazards is required.
Mission Safety’s Technical Rope and Rescue Training
Mission Safety Services provides Technical Rescue personnel who are trained to “NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications“. Our technicians are also very experienced, having worked in both industrial and municipal settings. They are competent in performing confined space and high angle rescue as well as trench and embankment rescue. They have the tools, experience and support to be able to assist you not only by conducting rescues, but also in developing written rescue plans for your “site-specific” work that will meet or exceed legislative requirements. Our teams participate in mock rescues based on your identified hazards and also conduct “daily” skills competency checks to keep current.
Mission Safety Services has provided, and continues to provide the Technical Rope Rescue training services mentioned above to oil refineries, cement plants, gas plants, power generation facilities, mines and waste and water treatment facilities to name a few.
