Learn the Technicalities of Confined Space Rescue Training
Confined space rescue training is a very demanding discipline of technical rescue. OSHA defines a confined space as one that is large enough to physically enter, not intended for human occupancy and has limited entry or egress. With this definition you can easily see that confined spaces are everywhere around us. In industry, in the workplace on the farm and even trenches are technically confined spaces.
Not long ago, up to 60% of confined space fatalities were would-be rescuers. These would be rescuers were sometimes coworkers and sometimes firefighters. Confined space rescue training has changed though statistics in recent years. The number of confined space fatalities has significantly decreased. Only through confined space rescue training and awareness has this been possible.
The confined space rescue section also includes illustrated details on intrinsically safe intercom system operation, tips on atmospheric monitoring, components of confined space rescue ventilation equipment and essential concepts of effective confined space ventilation. The confined space rescue section also includes illustrated details on extrication devices, rescue tripods and how aerial apparatus can safely be used as a high anchor point for confined space rescue training and operations.
