Wherever people go, medicine must follow
Explora Risk Medical is a pioneering healthcare platform that provides creative solutions to keep people safe in remote and austere environments. We have worked with film crews, research groups, student groups and exploratory teams to provide planning, risk management and health care in some of the most remote corners of the globe. You can check out some of the environments we have worked in below.
WHAT WE DO
Simply, we keep people safe.
Our equipment includes a fully mobile and adaptable medical team capable of providing clinical care in any environment at any location. Our crews are experienced paramedics, nurses and doctors with specialist skills in oceans, deserts, mountains, jungle, space, flight and conflict.
We crave adventure and we thrive in the unknown so if you can imagine it, we can provide health, risk and medical solutions for it.
Remote Film and TV
We can provide professional 24-hour medical cover to both large and small production teams in remote areas. Our team members integrate into any environment seamlessly with different levels of support tailored to each client's needs. Our experience working in the humanitarian sector, expedition industry and defence forces means we understand the unique demands of filming in both controlled and hostile environments.
We work with teams to plan and facilitate expeditions exploring remote and extreme environments for research, film, or educational purposes.
Our experience on expeditions means we can provide logistical and administrative support that can include planning, risk management, medical support, accommodation, food, transport and local in-country agents.
Our holistic approach to healthcare integrates COVID-specific strategies that include pre-departure COVID screening, COVID-specific risk mitigation strategies, emergency exposure plans, and on-location contact tracing.
Health and Wellbeing Risk
Whilst industry guidelines exist to support remote film crews, we can deliver a comprehensive and detailed risk assessment plan to ensure your duty of care to all cast and crew on-location is managed appropriately in the context of your filming location (environment dependent).
We can manage specific COVID hazards to ensure you maximise the opportunity to achieve your filming or research aims.
Health Care Guidelines
The detailed COVID-specific risk assessments we develop will require the provision of some simple guidelines that will act as on-location control measures to ensure we reduce the risk of exposure, and/or manage potential exposures. These guidelines will likely incorporate the following templates:
- Pre-shoot heath and medical declarations (COVID screening)
- Infection Control Guidelines – (includes health risk assessments)
- Emergency Exposure Plans (on-location)
- Use of PPE (and training if required)
