Rescue Standby Teams

Contact us today to schedule a rescue standby team for your job site!

Why do I need a contracted rescue standby team?

OSHA requires a rescue service be designated and capable of responding in a timely manner any time permit-required confined space entry work is being performed. OSHA also requires prompt rescue in the event an employee falls into his or her personal fall arrest system.

Many employers choose to rely on dialing 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. However, the local fire department may not provide technical rescue services or may already be out on another call when you need them. Maintaining your own rescue team can also be challenging due to the time requirements and costs associated with training and equipment. A contracted, professional rescue standby team can help you satisfy the OSHA requirements for rescue.
