An effective rescue plan may need a rescue team – trained, prepared and ready to go in an emergency.
This course is for anyone required to form part of an in-house rescue team assigned to standby at the entry point and, in an emergency, provide an immediate rescue response for those within the confined space, where lack of breathable air may be the problem.
Time and rescue are vital.
Having your own Rescue team is gives you surety of availability and more options to get the job done.
Rescue (if good planning and training are in place) happens very infrequently.
However, the time critical seriousness and potential skill fade from low incident frequency requires high risk rescue skills have to be revalidated every 12 months to maintain competence.
To train and assess individuals to safely enter non breathable atmospheres, treat, rescue and recover persons who have entered spaces which, due to their enclosed nature, their access/egress issues, lack of ventilation and their specified risk/s have been classified as confined spaces.
Strongly suggest undertaking additional medical training

Our annual 1 day requalification course tests your skills, will update any changes and will also re-qualify your High risk entry course in one day! (You’re gonna be busy!)

Maintain your competence in both
As the highest level of rescue, maintaining these skills/knowledge means:
Training the team in all of their skills in one day.
An engineer working inside a machine has lost voice contact with their supervisor and their personal gas alarm can be heard activating.
As a rescue team you need to access where they are, maintaining your own respiratory protection, restore an air supply to the casualty, and recover them to safety.
An operative from a grounds maintenance team has become unconscious whilst working on the chlorine system for the University’s fountain.
The supervisor is briefing the rescue team and recording their entry whilst the rescuers are completing their final checks before entering the space to rescue their colleague.
Some chambers the service teams enter are remote and would be particularly difficult to be rescued from.
Risk assessments demand that the teams could package, transport, and raise horizontally and vertically through narrow chamber openings.
Training for these spaces allow quicker and easier rescues if it were to ever happen for real.
