Confined Space Rescue Training

Confined Space Rescue Training

For any facility that expects to have their employees enter Permit-Required Confined Spaces, the ability to rescue trapped or injured employees from those spaces is a basic OSHA requirement. Many facilities assume that the local Fire Department will provide this service if an emergency occurs. In reality, very few Fire Departments are trained in Confined Space Entry and even fewer provide Standby Rescue services for industries.

For Permit-Required Confined Spaces that have a hazardous atmosphere, a Confined Space Rescue Team must be at the Facility. Our Confined Space Rescue Specialists design and deliver training programs based on the type and location of confined spaces at your facility. Pre-planning and rigging for confined space emergencies can prevent a medical emergency from resulting in fatalities.

Mobile Training Simulator

HazMat Solutions emphasizes safety and non-entry rescue. A mobile Confined Space Simulator is available for onsite training. During Confined Space Training, each participant conducts vertical and horizontal entries using a tripod and various types of retrieval systems. Basic mechanical rope rigging systems will also be designed for entries where tripods are not an option. All instructions given to your personnel adhere to current OSHA regulatory compliance.

Who Needs This Training?

Per OSHA Regulations
29 CFR 1910.146

Confined Space Rescue training is required for any individual who, during the course of their employment, is expected to make rescues from confined spaces. For Permit Required Confined Spaces that have a hazardous atmosphere, a Confined Space Rescue Team must always be on hand at the Facility.

A combination of drills and workshops elicit a response to chemical emergencies or other confined space issues by personnel that is learned, practiced and implemented on demand–almost automatically. An 8 to 40-hour course will be developed by our Technical Rescue Specialist, with content customized to match any facility’s specific needs.
