Executing a Confined Space Rescue

More than 60 percent of confined-space fatalities are rescuers, according to NIOSH, and OSHA reported that, when multiple deaths occur during a rescue, the majority of the victims are rescuers. Are your rescuers physically and mentally prepared to execute a confined space rescue when faced with a real-life emergency incident? Are they proficient in the rescue methods for non-entry and entry rescues? Are they confident they can think and react logically when under pressure? Statistics show that it can take only 4 minutes for a rescue to turn into a recovery.

In this webinar, we will discuss the critical components in your confined space rescue planning that should be top priority for your rescuers’ safety: rescue methods, rescue and personal protective equipment, and rescue training. We will also cover how to prepare your confined space rescuers emotionally and physically so they are confident and proficient when faced with executing a confined space rescue.
