Description:

This Rescue course allows your team to be an integral part of your rescue plan, supporting your entry team – should an incident occur.

If your entry teams can breathe but need immediate help, then an in-house rescue team may be the answer…

Enter and supervise rescue operations that are NOT breathing air related.

Rescue Team Competence

Rescue (if good planning and training are in place) happens very infrequently.

However, the seriousness and potential skill fade from low incident frequency and as such requires rescue skills have to be revalidated every 2 years to maintain competence.

Course Aims:

To train and assess individuals to safely enter breathable air, 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.

  • Undertake the role of an on-site rescue team – allowing greater flexibility for entries
  • Act as the Rescue team supervisor, controlling the rescue team entry.
  • Administer basic trauma care

 Strongly suggest undertaking additional medical training

So what does this mean?

This 1 day course will build on your Medium risk confined space knowledge and skills to enable you to enter or supervise an entry in order to support and rescue a casualty that is NOT breathing air related.

Examples of Rescue from Confined Spaces (Non-BA) training needs:

Rescue From Confined Spaces – Non-BA


A maintenance team for a hospital need to access a network of service tunnels supplying the hospital.

Knowledge of the network is known only by the teams, so it makes sense to be able to rescue one another should an incident occur.

Rescue From Confined Spaces – Non-BA


Teams on a large industrial site require immediate treatment in the case of an emergency.

An onsite rescue team train to access, assess, treat and transport a casualty from some of the difficult spaces on their site.

Knowing and practicing rescues, knowing their spaces and hazards, allows them to have the edge if an emergency happens.

Rescue From Confined Spaces – Non-BA


Some of the access spaces inside machines (or even aircraft wings) can be cramped to say the least!

If you train for the worst – you’ll know that if it happens for real, you’ve worked out the best solution.
