Under the Working at Height Regulations 2005, companies must have a rescue plan in place in case a rescue needs to be carried out. The rescue plan must include the correct training, equipment and procedures rather than solely relying on the emergency services, as a contingency plan.

Companies with personnel working at height without a rescue plan in place face possible prosecution by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which can lead to a fine or even imprisonment.

Taskmasters cover all aspects of proactive planning for a rescue including consultation, training of staff, supply of rescue and safety equipment, standby services and chaperone services.
