Confined Space Rescue Training Course Summary

In addition to planning how your workers will enter a confined space, you must create a plan to get workers out if anything goes wrong. This could be the result of a pre-existing medical condition, injury resulting from the work being performed within the space, or a result of the change in space atmosphere.

Employers must create a rescue plan that will allow a worker to be rescued without placing other workers at risk. Methods of rescue are broken down into non-entry rescue, where a worker is rescued using equipment located outside of the space, or by entry rescue, where a rescue team member(s) will enter the space using specialized equipment to retrieve the injured worker.

Our Confined Space Rescue Specialists will train your team on how to safely perform rescue through practical scenarios using Hot Zone's Confined Space Simulator located at our Head Office in Cambridge, Ontario.

Please note, our training includes instruction and use of Self-Contained Breathing Apparatuses.
