OH&S SafetyPod: Confined Spaces Defined: Hazards, Standards & Training

Editor Sydny Shepard discusses all things hazards, standards and training regarding confined spaces with guest Chris Koester, consultant and owner with Priority One Safe-T, an emergency response and standby rescue services and training firm for industrial and manufacturing companies.

It is so great to be back with a new feature episode of the podcast for you on the topic of confined spaces. I sat down with Chris Koester for a conversation on what a confined space is, how it is classified, the hazards that are present, the training needed and so, so much more.

First, a little bit about Chris: Chris Koester is the owner of Priority One Safe-T, LLC, an emergency response and standby rescue services and training firm for industrial and manufacturing companies. He is also a captain with the Springfield, Missouri Fire Department and has over 21 years of experience as a volunteer and career firefighter. He holds numerous firefighting and instructor certifications, and is an adjunct instructor for the Northeast Technology Center, and University of Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute.
