Standby Rescue
Rescue training may not be cost effective when jobs are short and present a significant risk of a difficult rescue. The rescuer on standby will consult with the workers to minimize the possibility of a rescue and pre-rig the equipment required for extraction. In jurisdictions that require written fall protection or rescue plans, the rescuer will provide a plan to be compliant with the regulations.

Examples of areas that may required standby rescue include:
  • traditional confined spaces
  • stacks
  • towers
  • dams
  • transmission structures
  • railroad bridge maintenance
  • mine construction
