Rescue Team activity this month

March was another full and busy month for SA Safety as demand has continued to grow. Rescue team activity has been intense as the team worked hard to deliver rescue and support services to customers in the high-risk utilities and industrial sectors.

This month, the team clocked up an impressive 4168 Rescue Team person-hours and 450 rope access hours. Working on multiple sites across the southwest, they supported clients to maintain a safe working environment. Click on the image to explore:

We’re passionate about CPD.

CPD is intrinsic to our rescue team activity. We’re proud of the professionalism and experience of our teams, and we work hard to maintain the highest possible standards. To do this, we ensure regular CPD for team members. Continuing professional development is all about developing your professional practice to keep skills and knowledge up-to-date.

Four team members completed the LOLER Inspection course in March. This means they are now qualified to carry out the statutory ‘thorough examination’ of equipment used for lifting, to check that it is fit for purpose, and safe. A further team member completed the PAT Tester course. As a result, they gained a useful qualification to ensure the safety of portable electronic appliances. We’re passionate about training and development, thus ensuring that your business always gets the very best from us.

Are you interested in joining the Rescue Team?

We are actively recruiting rescue team members; could we be a good fit for you?

Full training is available to those candidates who are suitable for development.

SA Safety opportunities now on Troopr

If you’re ex-forces and looking for opportunities as you transition into civilian life, why not look at our current rescue team opportunities on Troopr. We are a forces-friendly organisation with a high proportion of ex-service personnel. As such, we’re delighted to promote our opportunities on Troopr, a new website exclusively for the Armed Forces community.

Our highlight of the month

The highlight this month for us was SA Safety hosting a table at the Sportsmans Dinner; the annual fundraiser for our friends at Newton Abbot Rugby Club. Our guests all had a fantastic time on the night, only slightly dampened by the non-appearance of the guest speaker. We were all eagerly anticipating the legendary James Haskell, however, his train became stranded due to flooding, courtesy of this exceptionally wet winter. Roll on Spring!
