Critical Care International has supported a client mine site in West Africa since October 2016 when they commenced a large-scale engineering programme. This period saw a significant expansion in the number of on-site workers, from 30 to a workforce of 1100.
Critical Care International deployed UK trained doctors to undertake a healthcare risk assessment of local healthcare facilities, regional hospitals and clinics to evaluate how the healthcare risks could be mitigated. The doctor designed the new clinic and developed the project documentation including medical emergency response plans (MERPs). Critical Care International then deployed two UK physicians to manage primary and emergency healthcare for all client employees and contracted staff. This has included onsite health promotion, occupational health and first aid training.
