Confined Space Rescue Training

Rescue training missions are already extremely dangerous. Factoring in confined spaces that restrict the movement of rescuers further increases the risk to life and limb.

To minimize this risk, we offer a wide variety of confined space and workplace safety training classes that meet NFPA, OSHA, and ANSI requirements

Courses We Provide

The knowledge and abilities needed to perform timely savings from a variety of tight situations will be provided to the prospective rescuer by this training. This course will equip participants with the knowledge and abilities needed to accomplish a safe and prompt rescue of an injured or disabled worker from a confined space problem through classroom instruction, equipment demonstrations, and hands-on training in the field. In all facets of this curriculum, an emphasis is placed on safety, teamwork, and team building abilities.
