Confined spaces can be extremely dangerous work environments, and when a worker inside becomes incapacitated, the need for proper, efficient and effective emergency response is critical.
This two-day course will address principles and concepts of confined space entry rescue for standard and complex confined space locations.
The course will concentrate on the use of tripods, davits and pre-engineered rescue systems applied in both vertical and horizontal extrications, but it will also address essential rescue techniques used in challenging confined space configurations.
The practical, hands-on learning format will provide students with an engaging and enjoyable learning environment and is delivered by one of our highly qualified instructors.
Due to the physical nature of the curriculum, participants need to be capable of performing physical activities in order to partake in the program.
Students will receive a workbook for the class and certification upon completion.
Who should attend
This course is well suited for those who will serve as an on-site rescue person for various confined spaces that may present an atmospheric hazard to the rescuer. Participants will learn how to perform rescue techniques while using positive pressure respiratory protection systems.
