Determining the Right Rescue Team for Your Permit Required Confined Space Entries

Permit required confined spaces can be hiding potentially deadly hazards. That's why you need to ensure that the right rescue team is standing by.

Most workplaces have a confined space or two, but there are some spaces that have potentially deadly hazards in them, making them permit required confined spaces. When a worker needs to enter the space to perform a task or duty, it is imperative that plans are in place to ensure that if the entrant becomes immobile inside the space, they can be rescued. 

Who rescues this entrant though? That's what we are discussing on this episode of the podcast. Listen in as OH&S editor Sydny Shepard explains three ways that you can provide rescue services for your permit required confined spaces.
