Standby Services

Taskmasters Standby Services teams can provide rescue service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Using a dedicated emergency helpline number our customers can call us and request immediate assistance in an emergency rescue situation.

Taskmasters deploy a team, who will assist with the rescue including handover to the emergency services.

We have teams on standby ready to deploy to attend the emergency, whether that be:

  • Rescuing a crane driver from a tower crane
  • Rescuing a person stuck on a ride at a theme park
  • Rescuing a worker entrapped within a silo
  • Or retrieving a passenger from the Emirates Airline Cable Car, suspended 100m in the air on to a boat on the River Thames.

We can also provide rescue chaperones who will attend your site on long or short term projects and provide rescue cover for the hazardous works on your behalf, so that you concentrate on the task in hand therefore saving you money on equipment and training.

All Taskmasters Rescue Chaperones and Standby Services Teams are fully trained industrial abseilers, along with experienced ex command personnel, medical technicians and paramedics. They come fully equipped with rescue equipment specific to the needs of the site.
