Rescue Rope Specialists
Effective working at height rescue takes a lot of skill, knowledge and experience. Here at Midlands FRS, our Rescue Rope Specialists can offer you all the expertise you need to ensure that your working at height rescue provisions are second to none. In 2018/19, the provisional RIDDOR* statistics show that more than 27% of fatalities at work were caused by falls from heights. Working at height is the most frequent cause of fatal injuries to workers, and even in the best-regulated workplaces and sites, it is essential to have strategies in place to ensure that, if an accident does happen, those involved have the highest chance of survival. Rescue Rope Specialists, according to the Working at Height regulations, must have: the skills and knowledge to:
- Inspect, anchor, assemble, and use fall protection and rescue equipment safely.
- Recognise fall hazards.
- Implement fall hazard control methods.
- Conduct fall protection and rescue procedures.
- Inspect equipment and systems before use.
Rescue Rope Specialists Training should be up to date and renewed at least annually.
