Emergency response

PFL Engineering Services offers Emergency Rescue Standby Services in Nigeria. With our team of specially trained and certified Rope Access specialists. We specialize in the rescue services for workers operating in particularly difficult enclosed spaces, personnel working at height, personnel working in difficult access areas and in areas where there are dangers of the release of toxic substances and where there is basically a confined space.

We have one of the best training facilities in Africa where our men practice scenarios on a constant basis in preparation for the real activity. We are set up to take on any of the following rescue activities.

PFL Engineering have crews of men with OPITO offshore training certificates and relevant medicals. These personnel are experienced rescue Specialist dually trained and certified for emergency rescue. Crucially they are able to enter into any situation without third party rescue teams being on standby. This is extremely relevant when working offshore where accommodation on platforms is at a premium.

PFL Engineering are available to work either in conjunction with the incumbent client Fire and Rescue personnel or to operate as an independent service. We are trained to take responsibility for the initial first aid of the casualty through to their delivery to the external access point and subsequent hand over to the Emergency Services. PFL will assist in the compilation of combined client rescue plans which consider all of the possible eventualities. We will produce rescue method statements and risk assessments covering the crucial risk areas. These documents can be entered into the overall site HSE Construction Plan, thus demonstrating that the client has pre-planned for such occurrences. This is a lawful requirement of International HSE regulations
