So what does this mean?

Rescues may need a specific set of skills to lift, lower, move and drag across differing and complex sites, often with multi-stage systems required.

Anchors may be difficult, with multiple levels, vertical ladders, tricky edges, slipforms, silos, overhead and tower cranes, to name but a few.

Your particular requirements may need elements from across our skills range to be brought together with the right equipment to form a custom-made rescue from height solution.

This means you need a rescue plan, training and equipment to save a life.

This rescue from height training course will give knowledge, skills and structure to a rescue.

Examples of Rescue from Height training needs:

Rescue From Height (Custom Made)


Whilst the maintenance team are inspecting the jib and tower sections of their crane, they have a medical emergency. They need to be lowered to the ground quickly and safely.

Knowing that the site is remote and that the emergency services may take time to get the required skills to the incident, the onsite rescue team conduct the rescue, lowering the casualty to the ground, ready for the arrival of the paramedics.

Rescue From Height (Custom Made)


As a supervisor and senior member of an experienced height team, I know how exposed you are all day. Weather can change quickly and fatigue can lead to accidents. The requirement for a proven rescue solution was identified as a priority.

Site conditions and seasonal weather determined practice of our rescue plan away from the hazard. Building and practicing on a mocked up version of the problem allowed rescue scenarios to be done in safety and with regularity, meaning everyone was ready!

Rescue From Height (Custom Made)


As the manager, I’m responsible for the team’s day to day work.

Not just the task, but accessing the location, staying safe and planning for rescue if something were to go wrong…

It’s my duty to step back and plan the whole job safely…

If someone needed to be down (or up) in an emergency, who would do it, with what equipment and how would it be done? This solution ensured no entrapments on hoops or ladder rounds.
