Training Bechtel’s Emergency Response Team

Over four days in August, we were on-site at Bechtel’s facility in Yarwun to provide Vertical Rescue training to the Emergency Response team.

There were 10 volunteer members of the team in attendance, and our trainer said they posessed excellent medical and procedural knowledge, and were extremely keen and enthusiastic.

Our trainers are some of the most well-trained and experienced technicians in Australia. This real-world experience allows us to focus our training on authentic, likely rescue scenarios. Pick-off rescues, gotcha-kit rescues, hauling systems, stretcher rescues in difficult vertical and constricted terrain - they did it all! The skills the team acquired over the four days stands them in good stead to be able to respond to difficult access emergencies throughout the plant.

It’s all about keeping your mates safe!

I would like to thank you and the rest of your team for organising and contributing to what was a very successful Safety Day here at Sunstate Cement. As always we were very impressed by the professionalism of the Pinnacle team, from the first meeting you and I had at the start of the planning, through to the delivering of the demonstrations on the day. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed each session. The information and activities were very relevant to our business, and the demonstrations were delivered in a way that was easily understood by all. I had some really positive feedback from everyone.
