Trusted standby rescue process
If you have identified specified risks within your business or at your sites, you will need to determine the following;
- Does your organisation need an emergency response team?
- Alternatively, it may be the case that your workforce only requires a suitable risk assessment and additional equipment or training
First phase response - Are the competency levels sufficient to conduct a safe and successful rescue?
The first phase rescue should always be initiated by those undertaking the task / internal on-site team members. However, you need to consider
- If your current competency levels meet the standards required to conduct a safe rescue?
- Whether the correct equipment and PPE is available and is maintained.
These key factors will identify if your processes and resources are suitable and sufficient to carry out the first phase of a rescue.
- Ensure your rescue teams contain the right number of people, based upon site-specific risks and information.
What is the existing skill level of your workforce?
- Is it suitable and sufficient?
