All we can do is prepare for reasonably foreseeable problems, equipment defects, injured or incapacitated personnel, environmental issues can all happen…
That means you need a rescue plan.
Part of that plan MAY require a standby rescue team… or teaching and equipping your own team may be a more suitable answer.
Having your own rescue team (and / or having rescue systems available) can allow you to react quicker, plan tasks more easily and train for your specific environment.
More than that, rescue from height teaches you (and your team) to ask the what if questions, think through the tasks, pay close attention to the briefings and help the working teams.
Training to rescue from height brings home the importance of working safely, you have a real grasp of the consequences and it makes you a better team member when working at height.
By being more prepared, by helping the height teams, makes you a more informed member of any rescue team, meaning the less the likelihood of an incident occurring…
and if it does, the better the chance of a successful rescue.
Rescuers – ask the questions of the team and the managers, can we reduce the risk at height?
