I started my own business a few years ago, and I considered myself very lucky when it became profitable almost immediately. I was sure that was a sign that it was destined to keep growing, but to my surprise, my earnings became stagnant after being in business just a few months. I thought I was doing everything right, but I just wasn't making enough to stay in business much longer. I finally reached my wits end and called in outside help from a business consultant. I wish I had done it sooner, because it was the outside, unbiased view I needed to make my business more profitable. The consultant helped me make a few tweaks to my supply chain and marketing plan, and my profits increased dramatically. I like helping new business owners, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips!
You never know if or when an accident will occur on your industrial site or inside of your factory. You must be prepared to leap into action to save someone's life when needed.
You especially need to be ready to save someone who falls down and gets stuck in a small area on your property. You can prevent injury or death and lower your liability by networking with a confined space rescue service.
Fitting in Tight Spaces
If you were to try to save the stranded person yourself, you may not be able to fit in the tight area. You might be too large to get your body inside of the entrance of the space. You also may not have enough arm or leg length to reach the person.
Instead of getting stuck yourself and needing rescue, you can call a confined space rescue contractor for assistance. The confined space rescue service has workers who can fit inside tight spaces. They may also have the equipment to make the opening wider so someone can get inside and reach the person who is trapped.
Using Safety Equipment
The confined space rescue service also has safety equipment that workers can use to reach the person who needs to be rescued. The workers for the service may use equipment like halters, ropes, and ladders to go in after the person. The service may also have axes, hooks, and nets that it can use to open the space and provide a safer way to get the person freed.
You may not have this equipment on hand to carry out rescues of trapped people. Instead of scrambling to find something that you can use, you can call the confined space rescue contractor for assistance.
Finally, a confined space rescue service can lessen your reliance on 911 services where your factory or industrial site is located. The police and fire department in your area may not have the equipment to perform this kind of rescue. The confined space rescue company that you network with can take the lead and assist first responders in helping the stranded person.
A confined space rescue service can save a person who gets trapped on your property. It can widen entrances, use proper equipment and assist the police and fire department. For more information on how your company might benefit from these services, contact a confined space rescue service in your area.
