Confined spaces can be an extremely dangerous work environment, 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 will also address essential rescue techniques used in challenging confined space configurations.
