Hughes Sub Surface Engineering Ltd. are please to announce that on the 29th January 2014, Emergency Response Team Leader Phil Keating shall be attending and speaking at the RenewableUK Health and Safety 2014 Conference in Birmingham.
Phil shall be speaking under the heading of “Medical and Occupational Health”; with a the presentation: Emergency Management and Medical Care: “A New Approach” (See more at: RenewableUK).
Phil shall be discussing the success of Hughes SSE’s Emergency Response Team and the importance of Offshore Emergency Medical Support for ongoing and future developments.
Phil and Dilwyn, both Emergency Response Team Leaders, shall be available at the RenewablesUK event to discuss the team, the works undertaken to date and the possibilities of the team on future projects. In line with the Health and Safety 2014 event, Hughes SSE will also be distributing a press release issued by RWE discussing the importance of the team on Gwynt-y-Mor.
On Gwynt-y-Mor, the ERT provides 24 hour advanced medical and rescue response in field. Due to the location of the offshore site, it is beyond the remit of Statutory Authorities such as Fire and Ambulance Services to provide a response. The teams have four main aims:
– Identify life-threatening injuries and provide first aid
– Perform key interventions
– Achieve rapid extrication
– Provide timely transport to an appropriate medical facility
“The team provided by Merseyside based Hughes Sub-Surface Engineering Limited, is believed to be the most highly skilled ever to operate on an offshore renewables project and includes experienced offshore medical technicians.” – RWE April 2013
“The Immediate Emergency Care (Advanced) is the most up to date and advanced medical course currently available to non-healthcare professionals.” – RWE
