Confined Space Non-Entry Rescue (CON 501)
Who Is It For
Anfeald’s confined space non-entry rescue class (CON 501) is for people who enter confined spaces or work as attendants or entry supervisors and who require non-entry rescue training to meet minimum standards. Federal-OSHA and state OSH regulations require rescue training that is consistent with the actual rescue needs of the permit-space, its location, availability of entry-based rescue services to timely respond, the nature and scope of the work, and the complexity of the permit-space and its hazards. Rescue skills are perishable and require regular practice to maintain proficiency and safety. Training certificates expire after 12-months.
This course provides entrants, attendants, and entry supervisors with information on confined spaces, permit-required confined spaces, safe-entry procedures, gas-detection, ventilation, energy isolation, and related topics in the context of self-rescue and non-entry rescue for horizontal-entry and/or vertical entry, followed by rescue-related training topics that includes recognizing when a rescue is required, procedures for notifying and communication with local emergency responders, safe retrieval, safe patient-handling techniques, and other topics. This course’s emphasis is on the use of common entry equipment and pre-rigged systems with well-known confined space hazards, predictable rescue-scenarios, and permit-spaces that are close to outside resources. This is classroom training with practical/hands-on sessions using the client’s equipment and an out-of-service confined space that isolated from all hazardous energy.
This class is suitable as both initial training and an annual refresher.
