Due to the remote nature of most mining and resource sites, and the element of risk in this type of work, we have developed MSS Strategic Medical and Rescue, a specialist paramedical, emergency response and rescue division.
It provides fully qualified and trained paramedics, emergency response and rescue personnel to the mining and resources sector.
MSS Strategic Medical and Rescue also supplies specialised Clinical Emergency Response Advisory, Clinical Governance and Medical Consultation Services for our various site-based Occupational First Aid Responders, and Emergency Response and Rescue and Occupational First Aid Training.
To further enhance its national operations, this specialist division has opened a regional office in Moranbah, central Queensland, offering local support to its residential and FIFO/DIDO employees and mining clients in the Bowen Basin.
