How To Develop A Rescue Plan

There are some organisations which are helping people in need during crisis or any natural calamity. Such organisations provide rescue emergency help to those in need.

Employers should create a rescue plan which includes procedures for:

  • Preventing prolonged suspension
  • Rescue and treatment should be done as soon as possible
  • Suspension trauma symptoms and signs

Safety management must be mindful of the method used to rescue a fallen worker. These considerations could include:

Crane Man Basket – This option comes with severe limitations. The main one is time.This solution is not ideal because the crane isn't working for some reason. It could be:

  • winded-off
  • The driver might be absent from the crane
  • Rescue by cranes is restricted to exterior building façades. It is often not possible to rescue from the interior of the structure.
  • The crane man basket could be wrongly located.

Mobile Elevated Working Platforms – M.E.W.P. This rescue option can be limited by height restrictions and access limitations. The casualty might be higher than the M.E.W.P.

Rope rescue is a technical skill that requires extensive training. Because rescues take a short time, rope rescue personnel must be trained and available to assist in any emergency.

It can be difficult to get the right equipment for rescue. Every second that a casualty is hanging is crucial. The greatest limitation is that this skill is not something many people could or would learn.

When considering third-party rescue systems, there are many things to consider. TIME is the most important factor in any third-party rescue system. It is crucial that the system is deployed quickly and can be used to rescue personnel.
