CAN YOU PROVIDE PROMPT RESCUE?

What is “prompt” rescue?

According to ANSI, the recommended prompt rescue should be less than six minutes (ANSI Z359.4-6.1). Though these standards and regulations have been in place for some time, OSHA and ANSI are bringing this critical subject to the forefront. According to OSHA, falls from height account for 36% of all fatal accidents at work are the leading cause of death in the construction industry. In Canada, over 42,000 workers get injured annually due to fall accidents.

Why Prompt Rescue Is Critical

Without prompt rescue, the worker is at risk of sustaining medical complications or a worsening of injuries from the fall. Keep in mind that injuries can occur before, during and after a fall. A worker might be struck by a falling object or can suffer a medical emergency such as a heart attack; this could have contributed the fall. A worker might collide with part of a structure as he falls. Alternatively, a worker might be injured while suspended in his harness after a fall.

Suspension Trauma and Rescue after fall

After a fall, a worker is exposed to the risk of suspension trauma. Suspension trauma — also known as harness-induced pathology, harness hang syndrome (HHS) or orthostatic intolerance — occurs when a fallen worker is suspended for too long in his harness and the harness’ leg straps constrict his veins, causing blood to pool in his legs. In turn, this reduces the flow of oxygenated blood to his heart, brain and kidneys. Research indicates that suspension of a worker in a fall arrest device can result in unconsciousness — followed by death.

Premium QuickPick Rescue Kit

Premium QuickPick Rescue Kit is the best choice for users whose job does not normally include rescue. The premium kit includes a backup braking system that acts as a secondary fall protection device. In case of accidental release of rope the foolproof backup will quickly stop the system.

Features:

  • Out-of-the-bag solution for prompt rescue – no assembly required
  • Quickly raise or lower a fallen worker to safety – avoid suspension trauma
  • Professional rescue solution – enhances worker safety and corporate rescue plan
