Africa SAFE-T was established in the Lowveld of South Africa in 2006, and has since become a leader in remote risk and medical emergency management on the African continent.
The business was born after an Emergency Physician in a regional hospital recognised that lives were un-necessarily lost – and trauma endured – as a result of an undeveloped medical support infrastructure. Incorrect diagnoses and self-medication; a lack of immediate on-site professional medical support; delays in emergency transport; and admission to unsuited specialised care facilities exposed significant risks which could easily be avoided.
The most effective means of prevention is in preparation. If lodge personnel fully understand the nature of their remote environment and are trained to handle a range of medical emergencies, the risk to people’s lives is exponentially reduced.
Over a period of 14 years, we have built a network which has comprehensively closed these gaps. Our expertise lies in PREPARATION (medical risk assessment & internal capacity building); SUPPORT (medical support and response); and MANAGEMENT (comprehensive incident management).
We pride ourselves on designing customised solutions for our partners by understanding and adapting to their unique needs within the broader regional context. We facilitate a one-stop solution, absolving our clients of commercial liability in the process.
