This full, comprehensive course can be taken online or in a classroom at a “Training Provider” near you.

Course Description

The course includes a review of confined space legislation and best practices for confined space rescue, an overview of confined space rescue equipment, concepts to consider when planning for confined space rescue, and confined space rescue techniques.

A confined space basic rescue program for your workplace will describe what needs to be done before rescuers can safely enter and attempt rescue from a confined space.

At the end of this course the end-user should be familiar with the basic concepts, hazards, hazard control processes and safe work procedures associated with rescuing a co-worker from a confined space.

End-users should not assume this material alone constitutes complete training. It is expected that a workplace will apply this information as they create their own company specific Confined Space Rescue program as part of their company’s larger Health & Safety Management System. Due to the different policies and procedures and equipment utilized on different work sites certain statements in this program may not apply.
