Your Current Safety Provision?
Incidents and emergencies can occur in a moment and if they do, a proportionate immediate response can make the difference between life and death for any casualty or personnel. It is essential that you identify if your current rescue provision is suitable and sufficient for the level of risk any of your employees may encounter and for the risk profile of your site.
If you require further support and a dedicated team of standby rescue and safety professionals, HFR Solutions CIC can assist by completing;
- A risk assessment
- Method statement
- A rescue plan (if required) to cover your activities.
Once complete and prior to work starting, the HFR Solutions CIC emergency response team leader will brief your workers to ensure that everyone fully understands the actions needed to be taken in the event of an incident. If practical to do so, we will also undertake an exercise to test your rescue plans and ensure that everyone is fully conversant with their roles and responsibilities.
Should a specified risk exist within your organisation or at a site, it could have legal implications resulting from both internal and external factors that affect the operations of your business.
IEC (Immediate Emergency Care) Trained Emergency Response Professionals
Self-sufficient response professionals
All HFR Solutions CIC emergency response teams will contain at least one team member who is IEC (Immediate emergency care) trained and qualified and will be self-sufficient with rescue and medical equipment and firefighting capabilities.
An emergency response team will test your rescue plans and assess whether the level of risk changes as a project progresses. They will also test if your organisation holds the competency levels to execute the first phase of the rescue plan.
Achievable Rescue Plans
Standby response specialists will take into account the following factors of your rescue plan;
- Does the client understand the risk identified within the rescue plan?
- Are sufficient people employed to carry out the rescue plan?
- Are all personnel competent?
- Do all personnel fully understand the scope of work outside the rescue? Is it compliant with a safe system of works?
- Is the available rescue and safety equipment suitable and sufficient?
