My name is Luke McVeigh and I am the director of Arbor Corps Pty Ltd.
We provide contract climbing Arborists to utility management companies.
Every day we must up our game to stay safe when working in an electrical environment. I contacted SAR Dynamics to discuss best practice in emergency evacuation for our staff when performing high risk work in isolated areas such as remote power line clearing.
For our business this is an every day concern. As it is for our clients. Mark was able to assess our current systems and make realistic and affordable recommendations that we were able to implement with his help and direction. Mark set us up with ACR resQlink Personal Locator Beacons and provided instruction on their use.
On the training day, Mark delivered a 1/2 day presentation that covered Rescue Helicopter evacuations and how our staff could better prepare and maximise safety in the event of an emergency.
Emergency and Evacuation planning forms part of our Risk Assessment and we touched on issues like behaviour in emergencies, crew relationships and communication.
Mark provided our staff with invaluable information that was a mixture of reference material and on the job knowledge. He handled the group well and I believe it was a valuable day for all involved.
As a business owner I certainly feel better having been provided with the best information I can for my staff. I’d recommend anyone who is interested in keeping their staff focused on safety to consider bringing in SAR Dynamics for a sharpen up.
