Confined Space Rescue – Knowing You’re Ready

Most employers who enter confined spaces think they are prepared for a confined space rescue of workers in distress. However, all too often their sense of readiness is betrayed by a lack of understanding of regulatory requirements, rescuer training and equipment limitations, as well as a general rescue strategy deficiency. Not understanding rescue regulations and standards can cost those employers aggravating and expensive legal citations, while a botched rescue performance may cost worker lives. This webinar addresses the critical issues of confined space rescue service selection (in-house or outside team, combination teams, rescue response vs. rescue standby, external/entry rescue approaches, training requirements, rescuer evaluation (individual and team), rescue practice, and incident strategies.

This webinar is useful for anybody involved at any level with confined space entry work, but it is NOT an overview of that work. Time limitations allow the speaker to only address confined space rescue planning topics. It is designed to support those folks that want to know how to proceed or for those who want to ensure their program is regulatorily and performance ready. Attendees will gain an understanding of how retrieval and rescue are crucial pieces to the confined space work puzzle – they have to fit…they have to work!
