Benefits Of Hiring A High Angle Rescue Team In Advance
Whenever work is being completed at any worksite, managers and owners need to consider what would happen if an accident or emergency were to occur. Of course no one ever wants something to go wrong, but keeping the possibility in mind can reduce the chances that an accident turns into a tragedy. One way to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible, even if an accident does occur, is to have a rescue team already booked. Here are just a few benefits of hiring a high angle rescue team in advance.
Familiar With Potential Dangers
By booking a high angle rescue crew far in advance, you can give them the opportunity to come to your worksite and conduct a safety audit. This will tell them the unique risks and hazards associated with that particular job, and gives them a chance to prepare the right tools, equipment, and individuals to have on hand in the event a rescue is required. Not all high angle rescue jobs are the same, so giving the team a chance to evaluate the conditions and consider the potential risks helps to ensure the team is able to plan out the best possible rescue should something go wrong.
Hiring a rescue crew ahead of time also gives them a chance to review the road conditions, traffic, and environmental considerations that need to be kept in mind when planning a route to the worksite from their location. Giving them this additional time helps to ensure they are able to plan out a faster, and efficient, route to your location, resulting in a much faster response time should an emergency occur.
Improve Employee Morale
In some cases, having a rescue team on hand will reduce the insurance rates associated with the job. Even in cases where your insurance rate isn’t reduced, it will boost employee morale. Knowing that their safety is of the utmost importance and at the forefront of your mind when planning out any type of potentially dangerous work makes all employees feel more valued and respected within the company.
