With our sister company, Acadian Ambulance, Safety Management Systems (SMS) has more than 40 years of experience in emergency medical services. All EMTs and paramedics are NREMT-certified. As a CAAS-accredited ambulance company, Acadian has earned the industry’s highest gold-standard seal of approval.
Acadian's safety division hires only nationally registered remote and industrial paramedics to serve upstream, midstream and downstream companies in the energy industry, along with disaster situations. Our paramedics are trained and equipped for offshore rigs, industrial construction sites and remote locations. Located in on-site clinics, our medics can treat workers, so that lost work time is reduced.
Their paramedics undergo the best medical training in the industry, broadening their abilities far beyond the standard. Upon completion of a clinical extension course, paramedics are approved to operate under SMS’ Medical Director Dr. Donald Thibodaux, and directors around the country. The combination of top-notch expertise, training and our state-of-the-art equipment is what sets SMS paramedics apart from the competition. SMS paramedics are second to none.
The partnership that exists between the medical director and remote paramedics enables them to perform:
- Advanced diagnostics
- Minor wound repair
- Advanced airway management
- Pharmacology of common & recurring antibiotics
- Cardiac monitoring, including 12-lead technology
There When Needed
When worker lives and well-being are on the line, SMS is prepared and capable of handling any situation. These expanded capabilities reduce the number of medical evacuations needed, because the patient can be treated offshore or on-site for extended periods of time.
With SMS first responders on-site, your employees can receive ER-level treatment without having to go home or to a clinic, cutting down on lost time.
In addition, our paramedics can be cross-trained for:
- Helicopter landing officers
- Administration, logistics & dispatching
- Electronic medical records
- On-site drug screen collections
- Administrative support for behavioral-based safety processes
Quality starts with people, which is why we focus on providing the best team of safety and medical professionals in the industry.
