8 hour training program


Although every effort must be made to prevent a confined space emergency, unforeseen or otherwise uncontrollable events may occur during the course of an entry. In 60% of confined space accidents, the would-be rescuers become victims. This statistic can be greatly reduced with proper rescue training and planning.

Rescue planning is not only a necessity from a practical viewpoint; it is a legally-required component of any confined space entry program.

Classroom instruction combined with hands-on use of rescue equipment in a simulated rescue drill will improve a rescuer’s ability to conduct an effective rescue without placing other personnel at an increased risk of injury or death.
