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.
