Safety is one of the key values of the petrochemical industry. Throughout the industry, facilities with over-water docks are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of their employees as well as the OSHA Compliance of their sites. And now AES has joined in this effort and is offering Rescue Boat Services throughout the industrial field.
According to OSHA Title 29 CFR 1926.106(d), “At least one lifesaving skiff shall be immediately available at locations where employees are working over or adjacent to water.” OSHA states that this regulation is in effect regardless of other fall protection or drown prevention systems that are in place. AES Rescue is here to help industrial facilities stay in compliance with this regulation.
In addition to possible falls into the water, there are other hazards that AES Rescue accounts for. These hazards include temperature of the water, swiftness of the current, presence of floating debris, as well as other dangers that a person could encounter should they fall into the water.
Furthermore, AES Rescue Boat Services accounts for the condition of employees after a potential fall from an over-water dock. OSHA guidelines state the importance of being able to issue treatment as soon as possible (3 to 4 minutes) after an injury occurs. That is why AES Rescue Personnel are certified in First-Aid and CPR.
A USCG Licensed Captain coordinates all AES Rescue Boat Service operations. Our Rescue Boat Operators are also USCG licensed or have received extensive training from our licensed captain.
AES Rescue uses Deep-V Hull Aluminum Crew Boats for their high level of reliability and maneuverability. Also, our Rescue Boats have been outfitted with all necessary life-saving equipment.
