Environmental Emergency Response

Our experienced consultants are available to help businesses meet their legal obligations in health and safety. We provide a range of services including inspections, audits and professional advice.

Industrial Rope Rescue
High Angle operations are adapted to an industrial setting. This application of specialized rope techniques is designed to show how to rescue workers in hard-to-reach locations in the vertical environment. It is also designed to show how to create work system using ropes and specialized hardware as the primary means of supporting workers.
Duration: Dependent on level of achievement and rescue situation

Tower Rescue
Tower rescues can include workers involved with building or maintaining a tower or who have been injured or have suffered a sudden illness. These rescues are hazardous in many ways.
Besides the obvious danger of working at height, towers expose rescuers to hazards they may not normally encounter on the ground. The hazards on an electrical transmission line tower involve not just the transmission lines themselves, but also the area of close protection around those lines.
Tower training must begin with the appropriate hazard awareness training. Whether it is awareness training on the hazards of electromagnetic energy/radio frequency (EME/RF) or on the hazards associated with electrical transmission lines, no rescues or trainees should be permitted on an active tower until they have had this training.
Duration: Dependent on level of achievement and rescue situation

Bucket Rescue
Ideal for the one man crew! This course provides the means to safely and easily descend to the ground in the event of a fall from the bucket or the need to evacuate an inoperable bucket. We introduce a few options for safe evacuation from elevated work platforms.
Duration: 8 hours

Low Angle Rescue
Low angle rescue techniques differ from high angle skills in more rescue personnel at risk on the litter, more tension on the ropes, but less potential for free falls during a major system failure. These techniques are usually used by fire departments and mountain rescue teams for over an embankment, or mountain rescue situation.
Duration: 8 hours

Confined Space Awareness
Participants will be provided with instruction on the applicable confined space regulations including the definition of a confined space and the requirements of a confined space program. Instruction will be provided on assessing the hazards of confined spaces, the requirements for entry plans, permits, rescue plans and the control of confined space hazards. Review requirement annually. This course can be used as a review.
Duration: 1 day non-entry

Confined Space Level 1 (Ops)
Day one covers the requirements of Confined Space Awareness followed by a day of basic Non-Entry Rescue techniques the use and limitations of rescue equipment. Participants will work through rescue scenarios from the beginning of the job to completion of rescue follow by debriefing.
Duration: 2 day entry

Confined Space Rescue Level 2 (Tech)
Participants will learn all components of Entry and Non Entry Rescue. The purpose of this course is to prepare Rescuers to respond to any situation under strict timelines. They will learn about selecting appropriate PPE for different scenarios, hazard control, components of rescue, and medical considerations, communications and problem solving. Participants should have a strong rescue and medical background and possess a current Operations Level certificate.

Duration: 1 day

High Angle Rescue Level 1 (Ops)
This course provides the needed awareness of high angle hazards found in most industrial facilities and construction projects. Designed to teach rescuers how to access, package and evacuate the injured in vertical environments. Students will learn basic knots, rope rigging techniques, single point anchors, basket stretcher evacuations, including lowering and basic mechanical advantage raising systems. Patient consideration and handling will also be covered. Instructors provide continuous instruction and guidance. Safety is stressed at all times, and is the emphasis of all course contents.
Duration: 2 days

Duration: 5 days

Basic Emergency Response
The purpose of Emergency Response Training is to provide your employees with the basic skills that they will need to respond to their workplaces, families and community’s immediate needs in the aftermath of a disaster, when traditional emergency services may not be available.
