Health and Safety of attendees to ANY event should become an integral part of the planning, management process and general culture of the Event organizer.
One of Helivac’s core divisions specializes in Medical Event Management and Medical Standby.
Our team of qualified, registered medical staff will provide dedicated, on-site medical care at all types of events. Helivac has acquired fully equipped ambulances, response vehicles and an ATV quad bike specifically to service ANY event.
As per SASREA, a legal requirement now exists whereby medical services are required to be on site at an event. Helivac can provide this service in conjunction with the minimum medical requirements as per the SANS 10366 and will cater the medical requirements to suit your event needs while ensuring compliance with legislation.
Every event is unique – as are the medical requirements. The size; location; duration; and number of people attending the event are just some of the contributing factors determining the medical compliment. This means that the Medical Staff will only tailor the medical requirements after taking all these factors into consideration. A member of our Event Management Team will be present at all the on-site/pre-planning meetings and will liaise with all of the hospitals and other emergency services in the area. A medical procedure plan will be provided for every event as well as the emergency procedure planning documentation as required by the local council in the area in which your event is being held.
An important consideration to keep in mind when choosing your medical team for your events is whether they can transport a patient from the event location to the nearest hospital if need be. Helivac is registered with the BHF (Board of Health Care Funders).
This added benefit ensures that there is no delay in getting a patient to hospital, without affecting the dedicated on-site medical resources therefore your event will still comply with legislation.
As part of our Team, Helivac also has a Health & Safety Officer who is trained in Health, Safety and Environmental legislation in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. This benefit can be utilized separately or as part of your entire medical needs for a specific event.
