Confined Space Rescue


September 11, 12, & 13, 2019 / 7:30 am – 4:00 pm

This training is a collective effort between ABC Keystone and the Lancaster Public Safety Training Center.


Confined space entry can be deadly if the proper precautions are not taken. OSHA re-quires that all confined spaces be evaluated for potential hazards prior to entry and a permit be used if significant safety and health hazards exist. All too often deaths occur when the proper pre-planning and appropriate safety measures are not taken.

This program will provide attendees with the knowledge to recognize a confined space, identify the potential hazards that may exist, effectively evaluate the space and com-plete the required documentation and provide the necessary oversight for entry process.

The course will provide the training required to perform rescue, which is required to be implemented by OSHA. The confined space planning is to be a site specific written plan, that include the roles of the general/controlling contractor and owner, the procedures for communication of confined spaces on the jobsite, and the completion of hands-on training to ensure that the necessary skills are provided for effective evaluation and management of confined space entry and rescue procedures required on the jobsite.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Gain an understanding & appreciation of the serious hazards associated with confined spaces, as well as those associated with the work and rescue-related activities that may take place in them.
  • Gain the knowledge and decision-making skills needed to effectively evaluate a confined space for hazards that may be inherent to the space or that may develop because of the work operations.
  • Benefit from hands-on exercise to learn the procedure for conducting a safe confined space entry, as well as how to use equipment essential for the task, and to perform rescue in the event a worker(s) is trapped in the confined space.
  • Use the information from this training to display a professional company image and exceed customer safety expectations by updating your existing confined space entry program & permit to the new OSHA construction standard.
