Shutdown Support Services

Corporate Protection Australia Group (CPA Group) is one of the largest private safety & emergency response companies in the southern hemisphere. Our key individuals and associates have a history of successful outcomes in demanding, high profile environments and situations.  

Through our experiences we have become shutdown specialists and understand the specific challenges and requirements inherent in facility maintenance projects.

CPA Group has successfully delivered services including consultancy, personnel, equipment and vehicles to major shut down works in the mining, oil & gas, energy, critical infrastructure and maritime industries on time, and on budget. Our workforce’s experience, site familiarisation and ability to reduce any potential down time will be crucial to the success & costs associated with your shutdown.


The following is a non-exhaustive list of services that we can tailor to meet the shutdown project’s needs:

  • Supply of specialist staff (security, medical, safety and emergency response)
  • Conduct general WHS inductions (via our RTO)
  • Conduct pre-employment medicals
  • Perform drug and alcohol testing / training & certification (via our RTO)
  • Conduct site security risk assessments
  • Review & write rescue plans
  • In the event of an emergency, lead and control the emergency response until appropriate control agency arrives. 

CPA Group is well-placed to provide a highly efficient, cost-effective solution with cross-trained professionals covering appropriate combinations of security, medical or emergency services skill sets. Our paramedics/nurses are trained in emergency rescue, our emergency services officers are trained as medics, our security guards can provide first aid response and can form part of the emergency response team. This provides peace of mind to our clients that they are receiving an effective, highly productive and cost effective service that meets the risk profile on their shutdown project. 

This model is supported by our internal Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Baseline Training and our highly trained workforce reflects this heritage.
