How do our Confined Space sentries do this?

Height Safety Standby

Fully trained, qualified staff with years of working at height experience and involvement in practical rescue situations.

Our staff will ensure that the permit is filled out correctly, work and rescue equipment is in place and staff uses the PPE and height equipment correctly. In the event that a rescue is required our staff can initiate the rescue or assist your Emergency Rescue Team.

ssp9Standby Rescue Personnel

Rescue personnel need to have more than just a qualification, they need practical experience. Zokal works to provide specialized rescue and emergency response staff who have expertise in medical, fire, hazmat, breathing apparatus, confined space, height rescue and recovery.

During shutdowns site based Emergency Response Teams may not be adequately resourced to cope with the increased number of contractors on site or the increased volume of high risk work activity.

If you want to ensure that the best people are ready to respond in an emergency, Zokal can assist with Emergency Service Officers who are trained to respond to confined space and height related emergencies on site.

Gas Monitoring/Analyst Personnel

We can supply gas analyst personnel that are trained as a gas test technician and have specific knowledge of carrying out tests on explosive gases, oxygen, toxicity and clearance measurements in plants.
