The Neil Robertson stretcher is a heavy duty lifting stretcher. The stretcher is ideal for removing a person with injuries from spaces too small to use regular stretchers.
The stretcher is also perfect for incidences where the only option is vertical lifting for evacuation. Ideal for use in difficult rescue situations or confined spaces such as engine-rooms, cargo holds and boiler rooms on vessels.
Manufactured from high quality canvas and hard wood slats, the Neil Robertson stretcher has been widely used for 100 years. During manufacture, the slats stitch into the canvas ensuring both rigidity and casualty security.
The Neil Robertson stretcher is popular with the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, Mining, Industry and Emergency Rescue Services.
HSE guidance clearly states employers have a legal duty of care towards their employees. This includes arranging equipment to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if an injury occurs at work. If you’ve identified a risk you may also wish to consider a vacuum stretcher.
