In remote locations and complex industrial environments, potential emergency situations require intervention skills that exceed those normally reserved for the site emergency response team and public emergency services, thus compromising promptness of intervention as well as overall effectiveness of the emergency plan.
Arteak provide fully equipped emergency rescue teams with extensive experience in industrial rescue services, able to timely and effectively intervene in complex scenarios such as confined spaces where the injured person is exposed to life-threatening atmospheric conditions, as well as where high angle rope rescue techniques are required for completing the intervention, e.g. wind turbines, pipe racks, tanks and towers.
Arteak ERT technicians are qualified up to internationally recognized standards covering all key areas of expertise which are required for industrial emergency response. This includes Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) Technician, American Heart Association (AHA) CPR, First Aid and AED Provider, International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) Provider certifications. Furthermore, all Arteak ERT technicians receive internal training up to BS EN standards and regulations for advanced confined space entry and rescue with self-contained breathing apparatus.

We prepare specific assessment for each work area, thus facilitating HSE department in preparing risk assessment and communicating applicable control measures to operational staff and contractors which perform confined space entry.
|Work at height, confined space entry and rescue training|
Besides safety instructors competent on general topics related to occupational health and safety in the industry, Arteak provides highly qualified and experienced personnel for the delivery of training courses which demands participants to acquire very specific practical skills and experience.
Our key specialist training services cover Working at Height, Scaffolding, Confined Space Work, Rope Access, Technical Rescue, First Aid, Trauma Care CPR & AED.
Our pool of safety instructors includes qualified IRATA Level 3 Instructors, emergency first response instructors, search and rescue technicians and instructors, etc.
Responsibility, transparency and competency are key values for our clients. Inspired by internationally recognized standards and practices (e.g. OSHA, IOGP RP) we integrate with corporate specifications and specific JV HSSE procedures always respecting local legislation, we offer a range of assurance services which embraces the qualification of suppliers, personnel competency and projects execution phases. Compliance against defined HSSE requirements at different levels within the project’s organization. Our third-party assurance service guarantees independency and transparence of the processes used and provides insights into the internal function of an organisation which is invaluable to project success, setting the road to continuous improvement.
Competency and preparedness are the keys to ensure successful emergency management in a real case scenario.
Whenever client or contractor personnel is appointed to internally manage the organization of the emergency rescue services, Arteak provides specialized services to define potential scenarios and outline effective rescue plans to effectively manage emergency at height, inside complex confined space or in hazardous atmospheric conditions.
We provide training for the site Emergency Rescue Team (ERT) on advanced rescue equipment and trauma care devices, and promote the organization of regular emergency rescue exercises to test and improve competences and practical skills of designated ERT members, to assure a real intervention shall be performed in a correct and timely manner, thus resulting in a reduction of both potential severity and consequences of injuries.
Discrepancies between the approved work procedures and their actual implementation throughout project execution can be regarded as one of the lead causes for incidents in the workplace.
To assist the local HSSE and Project Management teams in consistently transferring safe work practices from paper to the field, Arteak provides site surveillance overlay services, focusing on high-risk activities (e.g. working at height, confined space entry, lifting & hoisting, hot works, energy isolation, heavy equipment and vehicles operations, scaffolding, excavations, underwater construction and maintenance, system testing).
We identify and report unsafe acts and conditions, assist in the intervention and implementation of control measures and promote implementation of HSSE Leadership Visit programs, with the aim of enhancing commitment to safety and visibility on the field of the projects’ management and HSSE personnel and of ensuring follow up on items pending for action.
Our approach is intended to support the growth of competences and safety awareness of the project workforce through on-the-field coaching and mentoring, reviewing safe practices and sharing lessons learnt to prevent recurrence, promote implementation of behavioral based safety and field level risk assessments programs.
