Emergency Site Protection®, LLC provides emergency first responders to sites around the world. Especially in remote areas where local first responders are not nearby or where it may take an extended time for them to get to location, the 24/7 presence of our trained first responders is invaluable for helping to prevent loss of life and property in medical or fire emergencies. We also provide rescue teams for confined space entry, H2S equipment and general safety training. In addition, we provide training for compliance with company, local or national standards to help you maintain a higher level of safety at your work site. When minutes count, we are seconds away! Exposure to hazards at oilfield locations have increased as activity and technology has advanced. The horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracturing campaigns which are now commonly being used for unconventional oil & gas wells have resulted in a large number of personnel remaining on location for extended periods of 24 hour coverage. These types of operations significantly push the man hours on location higher than those which were common in the past, resulting in increased safety exposure. Further, the boom in the oil field service sector has led to an increase in the presence on location of inexperienced personnel who may lack the necessary training to operate effectively and safely. The presence of ESP personnel at your location can help you to significantly reduce these risks. ESP helps raise safety awareness on location through targeted training, risk analysis, auditing, leadership, and on site experienced first responders. ESP provides a safety net to assist your operations by allowing the workers on your locations to remain focused on their jobs, and not ours. By using ESP, you can reduce the likelihood and consequences of incidents and increase the profitability of your assets while improving safety for the local community and your employees.
Our staff consists of experienced first responders trained to provide emergency medical assistance and firefighting support for your operations. All ESP site personnel are NFPA certified.
ESP is a proud supporter of our military and we employ veterans when available.
