OSHA’s Confined Space Rescue Plan: Critical Compliance Essentials And Tactical Training Techniques

Webinar: ID# 1022975
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
In 2015, OSHA’s construction confined space standard took effect. While primarily impacting construction activities, this standard put responsibilities on host employers and established new requirements for procedures around rescue and emergency services in permit-required confined spaces.

If a catastrophic event occurs while your crew is working in a confined space, the risk of injury or death are not limited to those trapped in the confined space. Often, those attempting a rescue get caught in dangerous, and potentially fatal,situations.

Whenever someone is involved in an onsite rescue, he or she must be trained on the risks of potential hazards and equipped to properly, and safely respond to an emergency situation. It’s also important to gauge the mental and physical fitness of the rescue team, as psychological or physical deficits could hinder a prompt and safe rescue, and in a situation where every second counts you can’t afford for confined space rescuers to hesitate or misstep because they’re flustered to a point where their judgment becomes impaired.

Join us for a can’t miss webinar when our presenter, Bill Katt, CET, CHMM will provide a hands-on, tactical look at how new confined space rescue rules apply to host employers and general industry overall. You’ll learn tips on how to ensure that rescue workers are properly outfitted and trained to respond when an emergency arises.
