Training Course: 6491 Confined Space Rescue Level 1


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 one-day course will address basic principles and concepts of confined space entry rescue for standard 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.

The course is well suited for those who will serve as an on-site rescue person for standard confined spaces that do not present an atmospheric hazard to the rescuer. This practical ‘hands-on’ learning format will provide students with an engaging and enjoyable learning environment and is delivered by one of our highly qualified instructors.

Due to the physical nature of the curriculum, participants need to be capable of performing physical activities in order to partake in the program.
