On-site emergency
medical services (EMS)

Netcare 911's on-site EMS cover provides a turnkey solution to employers, ensuring their workforce has instant access to world class emergency medical care when they need it.

How does on-site EMS
cover work?

With a dedicated team on site to take care of any workplace emergency, you’ll find us on call 24/7 at industrial and remote sites across SA — including local and international mining, construction and energy companies. Our service capabilities cover underground and surface mining.

We conduct comprehensive risk assessments in order to advise on the best resourcing relevant to each particular site. Our skilled occupational health specialists carry out pre- and post-deployment medical examinations. We also run continuous on-site occupational health and safety surveys and audits, while providing ancillary support to local medical facilities.

Access model

Fee-for-access (FFA)

If you choose a fixed monthly access fee payment option, we load all your company details onto our centralised system so we can manage any emergency through our emergency operations centre (EOC).

In addition to the fixed monthly access fee, we bill your company for whatever services it uses, irrespective of the number of employees in your organisation.
