Safety & Rescue Cover

Our safety & rescue teams will get you where you need to be, keep you safe while you're there and make sure you get back out, no matter where you are or what happens!

All team members are experienced, very qualified and highly skilled in providing safety cover in any environment, height, confined space and water. The majority of work carried out in challenging locations involves multiple specialties. With Element Safety one team can cover work in any location no matter what risk or challenges are present.

If your risk assessment identifies the risk of serious injury from work in a confined space the Confined Space Regulations 1997 state that you must:

"Put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts."

The emergency arrangements state that rescuers need to be:

"Properly trained people, sufficiently fit to carry out their task, ready at hand, and capable of using any equipment provided for rescue."

Rescue team

To ensure your work complies with the UK regulations, Element Safety will:

  • Check risk assessments; produce a safe system of work and a rescue plan.
  • Carry out an inspection of the confined space immediately before any work starts.
  • Check the suitability of all tools and equipment to be used in the space.
  • Ensure all persons entering the space are trained and qualified to do so.
  • Issue and maintain any permits to work which may be required.
  • Monitor and assist with the access/egress of all persons entering/leaving the space.
  • Constantly monitor the atmospheric conditions and advise on additional requirements.
  • Carry out a rescue, in accordance with the rescue plan, should the need arise.
  • Administer medical treatment or resuscitation until handover to emergency services.

If required the rescue team can also issue safety equipment and provide a safe means of access/egress to persons working in the confined space.
