Confined Space Rescue: OSHA's Latest Requirements, Safety Best Practices, and Common Mistakes to Avoid

Live Webinar: Tuesday, March 13, 2018

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: If you are responsible for workers entering permit-required confined spaces, now is the time to assure that your written program, training, and rescue procedures are up to date to protect your employees and achieve full compliance with the OSHA requirements.



If your organization allows workers to enter permit-required confined spaces, then you are required by OSHA’s regulations to have a written confined space entry program.

Even with a compliant entry program, however, entries into permit-required confined spaces don’t always go as planned—and if you haven’t properly prepared, things can go horribly wrong. Not only is the entrant at risk, but if your rescue team is not adequately staffed, equipped, or trained, the rescuers will be at an increased risk as well. When a worker is stuck in a confined space, there are two options under OSHA’s confined space regulations for an owner or operator of permit-required confined spaces to implement rescue procedures: either have its own employees enter and perform rescue, or arrange to have an emergency service contractor or fire department perform rescue operations. And for each choice there are strict training, equipment, and procedural requirements.

On average, over half of confined space fatalities each year are sustained by an untrained, unequipped would-be rescuer, and OSHA penalties for the lack of rescue services and compliant procedures can be stiff. A transportation terminal was recently fined $7,000 for failure to have a procedure to summon emergency services for its confined space entrants and for preventing unauthorized personnel from attempting a rescue. As OSHA fines continue to rise, these penalties will become increasingly detrimental to your bottom line.

Have you established OSHA-compliant rescue and emergency procedures for your workers, or met all the OSHA requirements for contracting with an outside rescue and emergency service? Find out whether your program is compliant and how to set up one that is. Join us on March 13th when Bryan Haywood, Founder and CEO of Safety Engineering Network, will provide a proven approach for developing and implementing an effective, comprehensive permit-required confined space entry and rescue program. Bryan will demonstrate that taking the time now to make the appropriate preparations will eliminate unwanted results in the future.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify the types of confined spaces and permit-required confined spaces, as well as best practices
  • Evaluate existing or potential hazards involved in these spaces
  • Develop a compliant confined space permit process
  • Review the specific requirements for permit-required space rescues
  • Assess your current rescue plans to identify potential gaps and strategies for working with outside resources such as the fire department
  • Establish a training program for your rescue team
