Confined spaces can be an extremely dangerous work environment, and when a worker inside becomes incapacitated, the need for proper, efficient, and effective emergency response is critical. This two-day course will address principles and concepts of confined space entry rescue for standard and complex confined space locations. The course will concentrate on the use of tripods, davits, and pre-engineered rescue systems applied in both vertical and horizontal extrications, but will also address essential rescue techniques used in challenging confined space configurations.
The course is well suited for those who will serve as an on-site rescue person for various confined spaces that may present an atmospheric hazard to the rescuer. Participants will learn how to perform rescue techniques while using positive pressure respiratory protection systems. This practical ‘hands-on’ learning format will provide students with an engaging and enjoyable learning environment and is delivered by one of our highly qualified instructors.
Participants for this course are all those who may be involved with a confined space program at the worksite including the employer, management team, entry supervisor, attendant, entrants, and rescuers.
