Confined Space Rescue: OSHA's Latest Requirements, Safety Best Practices, And Common Mistakes To Avoid

Webinar: ID# 1026177
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Learn best practices for confined space rescue in general and construction industries that comply with OSHA’s final rule and NFPA 350.

If your organization has permit-required confined spaces, you likely have developed a confined space entry program to keep your workers safe. But, even if workers enter confined spaces safely, things could still go wrong. And, if the rescue team is not adequately staffed, equipped, or trained, the rescuers, as well as the trapped worker(s) will be at increased risk.

Many organizations struggle to decide if they should train and assign their own workers to perform rescue, or contract with a rescue service. What happens if you hire a service and they aren’t available exactly when you need them? Are you sure they can perform rescue safely given the special confined space hazards at your facility? On the other hand, do you have the time and resources to train your in-house rescue squad and maintain the materials they need for rescue, and to refresh their training annually?

If you’re responsible for workers entering permit-required confined spaces, be sure that your written program(s), procedures, training, and emergency response planning are up to date to protect your employees and achieve full compliance with the OSHA requirements.

Join us to learn how to design and manage an effective permit-required confined space rescue program.
