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 (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.
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.
Strongly suggest undertaking additional medical training
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.
Anyone required to form part of a team assigned to standby at the entry point and in an emergency provide an immediate rescue response CANNOT (even if trained for EEBA) enter to RESCUE whilst wearing breathing apparatus.
This will be in the form of a skills update, practice and assessment day – which will revalidate your confined space entry AND rescue skills.
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.
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.
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.
