Casualty recovery times can be decreased significantly with the use of an ActSafe ascender and a properly trained rescue team. The estimated recovery time from this 65m shaft is less than 8 minutes, once the equipment is rigged and set up in position.

"Over the last few years we have been working with the South West Water Access and Rescue team to improve their small team rope rescue capability. One of the ways this has been achieved is by using powered ascenders such as the Actsafe. The Acstafe allows us to undertake complex and often deep shaft industrial standby rescue with a compact team, utilising the winch to eliminate the need for a haul team, reducing team numbers and fatigue on longer raises. The fine speed control of the Actsafe, especially when used on a 2:1 MA, with the added benefit of a remote control make this device very well suited to small team industrial recue.." - Alan Sunshine, Rope Geeks )
