Has your corporation every considered any vehicle rescue techniques or basic trauma care in the event of an incident whilst working in remote locations.
Many medium and large corporations around the world work in remote environments and in countries with poor road infrastructure and little emergency response provision. Due to the locations of their work, it is often necessary to travel long distances on dangerous roads due to poorly maintained vehicles, untrained road users and poorly maintained roads.
Organisations such as Charities, Health workers, Oil and Gas, Mining, Lumber and many others businesses often have their personnel working in very remote locations or underdeveloped countries around the world.
As part of their corporate risk assessments, it is often identified that one of the biggest risks to their personnel is the chance of a vehicle collision.
In the event of a vehicle collision it is highly unlikely in many parts of the world that there will be any type of effective vehicle rescue services in close vicinity to the incident, and if there is, they will be poorly trained and ill-equipped and could actually make matters worse and compound any injuries sustained.
