When workers are operating at heights where they could fall into their fall arrest system, the employer must provide for rescue.
This required rescue could utilize other staff on site with an elevated platform or other equipment.
Onsite staff would need to be trained in the rescue plan and practice the plan regularly. Certain employers in British Columbia can also rely on the Technical High Angle Rope Rescue Program (THARRP) that allocates funds to fire departments to perform rescue services. Unfortunately many employers do not have the specialized equipment to assist a worker that has fallen into their fall arrest system or are not located in a THARRP funded area. In these cases Ronin can provide a solution for you.
