Controlled Descent Device Rescue Kits

It is a requirement of the Work at Height Regulations 2005, that a Rescue Plan has been written and is in place whenever an individual is working at a height which if fallen from could cause serious injury. This is known as a Working at Height Rescue Plan.

It is important that the details of A Working at Height Rescue Plan are specific to the structure and equipment to be used so those that need to be rescued can be quickly and safely recovered without putting anybody else at risk.

A Rescue Plan must meet the following criteria

  • Have we trained the rescuers to a high level of competence
  • Which equipment is most suitable for this type of rescue
  • How will you know if someone is in need of rescue?
  • How quickly and safely can we get a rescuer to them?
  • Have we planned adequate anchorage points for the rescuer
  • How quickly can you get them to a safe place?
  • Can we assess any medical, or other, needs of the individual during and after the rescue

A person may fall while connected to a Work Restraint or Fall Arrest system and become suspended in their harness; if a person is suspended even for a short period of time this can result in a life-threatening condition known as suspension trauma.
