WHY DO WE NEED RESCUE?

Our duties. Legal. Moral. For those of us who work at height fall hazards are a necessary evil. It also means we have a duty — not just to ourselves, but to others. For employers it means making the correct provisions for the workforce. For operatives it means working safely and acting quickly in an emergency. But that’s only half the story. Because our moral duties are enforced by our legal ones: the WAH Regulations 2005 and British Standard 8437. So we need height rescue not just to protect our workforce, but to satisy the law.

Satisfy The Law

Protect My Team

HOW DO I FULFIL MY DUTIES?

Training. Equipment. Duties fulfilled. Fulfilling your legal and moral duties requires two things: training and equipment. For height rescue that means selecting appropriate recovery systems and giving workers the skills to operate them. But because training and equipment are intimately linked, we believe they should go hand in hand. So by manufacturing our own equipment and developing our courses around that equipment, Leading Edge offer the safest, simplest way to gain adequate rescue provision.

W H AT H A P P E N S I F I F A L L?

20% face death within 10 minutes... After a fall the body goes through several stages of physical distress. These are a group of conditions known as Suspension Intolerance and Reflow Syndrome. Their effects can be devastating. So much so in fact that 20% of all fall casualties are presumed dead within 10 minutes. And for everyone else? Within the hour.

CAN’T WE JUST CALL EMERGENCY SERVICES?

999? There’s no time to wait! We’ve learnt that fatalities can occur within 10 minutes of a fall. But the truth is it only takes 5 minutes for irreversible brain damage to occur. So while it’s an testament to our emergency services that they’re able to arrive within 8 minutes of being notified, for us that’s already too late. By being prepared to act immediately you’ll not only save a life, but halt a lifetime of difficulty and hardship for the casualty and their family.

H O R I Z O N TA L RESCUE TRAINING

Live Rescue. Real Experience. An effective rescue saves lives, but it takes real practise. The Rescue Training Centre is built for that very purpose. And not only can you use every rescue system and deploy them at floor, waist and head height but there’s two live edges — that means we can run two groups in tandem, so you gain twice the time and twice the practise.

VERTICAL RESCUE TRAINING

Advanced Towers. Effortless Rescue. This is no ordinary tower system. It’s a 7m multi-level, multi-storey hybrid training tower, reinforced with scaffolding. It’s anchored to the building and complete with structural fall-arrest anchorage, an overhead i-beam and a multitude of safe access points. That’s a lot of complexity brought together for a sole purpose — to make vertical rescue training as simple and effective as possible.

15


VERTICAL RESCUE TRAINING

Vertical Rescue. In a safe, controlled environment. Excavations, lift shafts, confined spaces, man holes... They all mean one thing in a fall: vertical rescue. You need to act quickly, and you need to get it right. The problem is it’s nearly impossible to gain sufficient training on site. But in the Rescue Training Centre we’ve created a controlled environment. So you can anchor safely to our advanced multi-storey, twin tower system and master raising and lowering casualties to safety — with weighted mannequins, winches and descenders.

RESC UE METH OD S The height rescue course provides dedicated training for three types of rescue system. Together they allow the safe recovery of a fall casualty in any situation using the raising, lowering or combined raising and lowering methods. But the course is far from generic. You choose which one you want—or all three—and your training focuses comprehensively on your chosen method/s, wasting no valuable time on things you’ll never need.

20


H AU L Raising Method When lower floors are obstructed, glazed or high-rise, the haul system allows an unconscious fall casualty to be raised back to the area from which they fell. Though highly effective, its pulling mechanism requires a minimum of five people to conduct a safe and speedy recovery.

DESCENT Lowering Method Execute the recovery of a conscious or unconscious fall casualty by lowering them safely to the ground or a lower floor. Requiring only one person to operate makes descent a quick and easy method of rescue, however it is only suitable for applications where there are no obstructions or restrictions beneath the floor from which the casualty fell, i.e. it’s safe to lower!

WINCH Raising & Lowering Method The winch system combines the benefit of both haul and descent in one simple device to ensure maximum safety for all situations. The winch is not only easy to deploy but requires only one person to affect a speedy rescue by either lowering or raising the casualty to safety.

Overview With the Leading Edge Height Rescue Course comes a whole new way to learn rescue. At its heart is a series of massively hands on practical exercises and drills — because repeat practice is the key to effective rescue under pressure. It gives you the confidence to remain calm and the skills to rig, deploy and operate rescue systems for the swift recovery of a fall casualty — ensuring yourselves and the casualty are kept safe from additional risk at all times.

24


In a Nutshell • Rigging, deploying & operating rescue systems • Harness refresher training • Suspension Intolerance & Reflow Syndrome • WAH Regulations & British Standard • Self-recovery with rescue ladders & rescue steps • Immobilized conscious & unconscious casualty recovery • Recovery from different fall protection systems • Horizontal & vertical recovery scenarios • Post-fall first aid procedures • Inspection, packing & storage of equipment • HSE best practice’s • Rescue planning • Equipment selection & identification • Timed practical drill exercises

25


How It Works Your workplace access and egress determines the type of rescue you can perform. So the course integrates three different yet powerful rescue method options: Winch, Haul and Descent. Together they enable recovery from any situation by raising or lowering a casualty to safety. You choose which method you need to learn — or all three if required! Pick one and you’ll receive 5 hours of tuition, hyper-focussed on the rescue techniques associated with your chosen method — and none of the fluffy stuff that isn’t! Choose all three and you’ll gain an extra three hours to not only operate additional devices, but discover how to select the right ones for your scope of work, anchorage configuration, level of access and personnel — a perfect option for supervisors and management.

26


On The Day It only takes five minutes for the onset of suspension intolerance to change a life forever. Venous pooling, orthostatic intolerance, vascular shock — learning how these devastating conditions affect a fall casualty underpins the need for a suitable rescue plan. And that’s where your theory session culminates. But to begin with we’ll look at some eyeopening statistics that reveal why we need height rescue and walk you through the legislation in place to protect those working at height. We’ll then refamiliarise you with wearing a full body harness and provide one to each of you to practice donning, with best practice demonstrated along the way — so you’re safe when it comes to the practical! Finally we’ll explore the types of rescue equipment available and their uses for recovery based on their suitability and performance capabilities. This section also includes the process and frequency of equipment inspection, as well as anchorage considerations you will commonly encounter. The rest of the day includes a series of invaluable practical scenarios. You’ll conduct repeated self and assisted recoveries—in vertical and horizontal rigged positions—from a variety of fall protection equipment with full-weight manikins. This gives you total competence with your chosen rescue system/s. And to test you are able to recover a casualty in a timely manner, the course rounds off with a 5-minute rescue challenge, in which you’ll compete—individually or in teams—for the fastest, safest recovery.

SYSTEMS Rescue systems are basic devices that facilitate the recovery of a fall casualty. These are the most economic options if you have limited exposure and are ideal for task specific use. KITS Kits are your total rescue solution. They contain everything you’ll need to conduct rescue in a transportable fast access rescue rucksack. Besides an edge roller that protects your rope and allows the kit to be used for regular practise, the biggest addition is a quick-deploy ladder, which in most cases allows a conscious casualty to perform a fast self-recovery after a fall.

SUITABILITY: Compatible with all lanyards, intertia reels and restraint systems.
