Confined Space Standby Team

Why do I need a standby rescue company?

Because a permit-required confined space has materials or conditions immediately dangerous to the health and safety of workers, anytime a facility has an employee enter a confined space, they are required by OSHA to have a certified confined space standby team.

There are 14 pieces of information required for a CS Entry Permit, one of them being rescue and emergency confined space services that can be called upon in an emergency. Permits may also require Environmental & Chemical Testing or written emergency guidelines and procedures that we can help you establish through our Safety Consulting services. Emergency situations involving confined space entries require ample training and equipment to safely attempt rescue. Our Safety Training offers a confined space rescue course to help train in-house rescue personnel who can help keep all employees safe.
