How do you rescue someone who has suffered an accident at a great height if ordinary means are unavailable due to the inaccessibility?
How do you transport the victim down again from 200 m up with just your own strength, if all that is available for the descent is a ladder?
These and other problems are the reason behind rescue devices.
Descender devices have been used successfully for years to bring people down from elevated work places.
The Rescue and Evacuation of an Injured high access Worker is a Mandatory consideration for Work at Height Operations. From pre-planned rescue operations, such as those performed by global fire and rescue teams to the on-site. The systems can be developed to allow the raising or lowering of a casualty, either in their own harness, a temporary rescue sling, an evacuation splint (perfect for confined spaces) or a fully-functioned rigid stretcher.
Emergency Services Rescue
During a rescue operation, safety is of paramount importance, but time and nature are often against you. A well-planned and rehearsed operation will result in a positive result. We offer a comprehensive range of technical rescue equipment from self-operated evacuation devices, to class-leading stretchers and body splints.
Rope access is the means of accessing difficult areas or areas normally inaccessible by conventional means. It involves suspending a person to their point of work by the use of a personal positioning system.
The worker requires a high degree of competence and must undertake suitable training to ensure the task is carried out safely. This allows harnesses and hardware to perform in all environments and are ideally suited to the vertical world of Industrial Rope Access.
