Australia’s economy is highly dependent upon revenue generated in remote regions of Australia. As this reliance increases, so do the number of projects being undertaken and with this comes urgency, skills shortages and in turn risk. Your people are your number one commodity, keeping them safe and well will always be your priority.
When planning remote mining, exploration or exploration works there are lots of considerations regarding Medical and Emergency Response Services (MERS).
How many staff will you have in the area?
Are you conducting any hazardous works?
How far away from help are you in the event of an incident?
What does your emergency response plan consider as reasonably foreseeable emergencies that could take place?
What medical evacuation plans are in place for critically ill or injured personnel?
What skillsets and qualifications do you need based on your risks (ESO’s, Paramedics, Nurses) – Contracted, permanent or volunteer?
What training programs do are in place to induct, train, and refresh emergency response skills onsite for your personnel?
What emergency response equipment and vehicles are required? (4WD Ambulance, Fire Appliance)
What medical consumables do you need?
Do you need a Poison’s Permit or RFDS Kit?
Is a clinic required on-site?
