WATER RESCUE

For companies working over or near water there are four requirements that are needed to be compliant with the standard. These requirements are not specific and can lead to unanswered questions. Some of these regulations are covered by specific letters of interpretation to aid you in the decision process.

If you and/or your company are bidding a project which involves working over/near water, our experienced Water Rescue team will review the project, guide the process, and supply you with a skiff and operator.

CONFINED SPACE ASSESSMENTS & RESCUE PRE-PLAN DEVELOPMENT

Effective hazard assessments provide the foundation for your confined space process. All major components of the process depend upon an understanding of the hazards. Your training, equipment, policy, procedures, rescue needs and other aspects of your approach to confined space safety must be based upon a thorough knowledge of the challenges your entry crews will face. Assessing your confined spaces to identify hazards and potential hazards can be challenging. Med-Tex Services can assist you with assessing your confined spaces and will conduct on-site evaluations to identify hazards as well as create entry and rescue pre-plans for each space. Our assessment teams are highly-qualified experts in confined space entry / rescue and will provide you with a comprehensive entry pre-plan once the on-site evaluation is completed.
