Confined Space Rescue
Safety Results confined space training courses are designed to assist employers and employees in understanding the characteristics, hazards and legislative requirements needed to operate safely within confined spaces.
Participants are guided through recognition of typical hazardous conditions relating to confined spaces including oxygen depletion, combustible atmospheres and atmospheric contaminants. Armed with the knowledge to identify potential hazards, participants learn how to assess a task, control the hazards and develop and implement rescue plans to safely deal with emergency situations. The wearing of breathing apparatus and atmospheric monitoring is incorporated with the standard confined space program, to provide a complete skills base for operators with limited experience in the use of this equipment.
Duties of confined space operators, standby personnel and rescue crews are presented in a combination of classroom and practical activities; leading to an assessment of and entry to a confined space under controlled conditions, which is followed by a simulated rescue.
Participants are encouraged throughout the program to develop, participate and apply skills in the safe management of confined spaces; from planning and execution, through to completion of confined space activities.
