Provision of Safe Access, Standby Rescue and Site Safety Auditing/Inspections.
GSD specialises in the provision of stand-by rescue services and the provision of site safety management. Many of our clients engage us to provide stand-by rescue services for their own employees or service providers during working-at-height or confined space activities.
In specifically hazardous situations, we are often engaged to implement and manage the sites' safety management (this includes applying the GSD safety systems and ensuring all people on site are working under our safe work practices) or to audit and monitor the works on-going.
Rate of Deaths in Confined Spaces
Fifty-nine confined space-related deaths were identified over the period 2000-2012; an average rate of 0.05 deaths per 100,000 workers across Australia. (Source: Curtin University)
Safety System Certification
Height Safety Systems must be inspected and certified annually. Often height safety and confined space access systems can become damaged or obsolete and should be considered during capital planning.
Fatalities due to Falls from Heights
In the past five years, falls from height accounted for 13% of worker fatalities.
