Donut Safeland Rescue
The risks associated with work at height are well known throughout the Port & Construction Industries. It is reasonable to foresee situations where workers become trapped at height: in Cranes, Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) or Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs). Personnel may be in life threatening situations through injury or a medical emergency such as a heart attack.
Health and Safety legislation requires the dutyholder to risk assess the use of mechanical handling equipment where the operator works at a high level - to recognise the possibility of the worker being injured at height. A rescue plan is to be provided which does not rely on the fire and rescue services.
Injured Party Rescue
Our Safeland Rescue is designed to lower injured / unconscious personnel either within the Units own Harness or in conjunction with a suitable stretcher, allowing Operators to meet the requirements imposed by the Emergency Services in respect to having Casualties accessible at ground level, where assistance can be safely provided by the Ambulance services.
The Safeland Rescue Units can either be stored on location (i.e. in a crane cab) or included within the sites emergency responders team equipment.
