Health and Safety has such an impact on every aspect of our lives these days not only in the workplace, public services but also in the home. With the right adherence to health and safety recommendations, society becomes more efficient at preventing accidents and saving lives on a daily basis.
As the saying goes, “we learn from our mistakes”. As accidents and disasters happen in our world, society inevitably learns some hard lessons, that could have been prevented had the right health and safety measures been in place. The health and safety market is currently bursting with amazing, innovative and essential safety equipment for all kinds of environments. Rescue stretchers and evacuation equipment such as stair climbers and evacuation chairs can make the difference between a smooth rescue and a disastrous one.
The stories which have emerged from 9/11 stand as a timely testament to how the right equipment, in the right place and at the right place, can make all the difference between life or death. Evacuation equipment can ensure the speedy rescue or movement of persons with limited mobility whether due to condition or injury, from a potentially life threatening situation. Our Emergency Services successfully use basket stretchers to not only rescue and recover persons from RTAs (Road Traffic Accidents) but can also be used to rescue climbers aboard rescue stretchers from mountain or hillside.
Basket stretchers and rescue stretchers are commonplace on our nation’s TV screens and images are beamed out into our homes on a weekly basis, showing how these versatile, cleverly designed and essential pieces of kit; transport their charges safely and comfortably to hospital. Whether it is: a stair climber, evacuation chair, basket stretcher, rescue stretcher, immobiliser or splint – these vital pieces of equipment can help move the disabled, injured and the elderly to designated safe zone with ease, preventing further injury or even loss of life.
