Emergency Preparedness

Ask yourself these critical questions:

  • Do you know which type of medical incidents will occur in your organisation?
  • Are you adequately prepared to handle a medical emergency in a remote location?
  • Will your personnel always respond to a medical or any other incident in a manner that will ensure the best possible outcome?
  • Do you have all the necessary emergency equipment on your remote site for effective incident management?
  • How far is the nearest MOST appropriate medical facility and evacuation service to you, and how long will they take to reach you?
  • In a life-threatening situation will the patient be able to survive until professional medical care arrives onsite?

If any of the answers to the questions is “no” or “I don’t know”, then you are at risk for an adverse event outcome to occur on your property.

Any organization has to operate according to safe and professional standards to minimize the chance of accidents and incidents occurring.

Companies should have a pre-planned system for dealing with critical incidents that may cause harm or loss.

Our preparedness services include:

  1. Medical Risk Assessments (Vulnerability Capacity Assessments)

Our team analysis your operations and we assess what can go wrong on your site. We also determine your current ability is to successfully respond to any incident taking into account internal and external resources. Africa SAFE-T then makes recommendations for corrective measures.
