Case study Amazon
A large German electrical company wanted to build a power plant with a long power line in the middle of the Amazon. It turned out that the nearest hospital was 70 km away and the emergency service only went as far as the river in between the two.
Since fast transport is especially vital for trauma patients and an air rescue service does not exist in this region in Brazil, med con team was commissioned to create a concept so that a patient can adequately be cared for on-site and transported directly.
In the end, local, American Heart certified, emergency paramedics were deployed, supported by telemedicine. Every employee had access to the SOS-call, which also worked in the area of the construction site as well as in the city. A suitable ambulance was kept on site and communication was optimized via satellite. Ultimately a concept was developed that fully covered the employer's duty of care and showed employees that the construction site was well prepared for serious medical emergencies.
