AHT Rescue is your go-to partner for ensuring a risk-free workplace at all times. We offer a comprehensive range of confined space rescue services, including site assessments and training courses.
Workplace hazards can occur suddenly and result in injuries and accidents, especially when you’re working in a confined place. Working in confined spaces is a hazardous undertaking and requires a significant amount of planning and care.
With AHT Rescue’s confined space entry attendants and rescuers, companies can be confident to operate safely and productively, even in restricted areas. Our confined space entry procedures are designed to maximize the entrant’s safety and ensure swift and effective job execution. We can manage the safety issues at your company thanks to our years of experience, in-depth training, and commitment to safety.
A confined space rescue team is a group of trained workers responsible for designing and implementing rescue procedures onsite, detection of hazards, proper setup and use of equipment required to perform a rescue, monitoring of workers in a confined space, and completing all required documents.
This person must be proficient in hazard assessment, procedure development, equipment selection, and rule implementation. It’s this person’s responsibility to ascertain if acceptable entry conditions are met, communicate with all entrants and rescue team members that rescue procedures are understood prior to entry, terminate entry if necessary and lead the team in performing a rescue if deemed necessary.
A confined space attendant is never to enter or leave the confined space and is responsible for coordinating between the rescue team and outside emergency services. A confined space attendant’s responsibilities are to monitor authorized entrants and to notify rescue services when necessary.
They must know how to perform an assessment of a confined space (including hazards, install rescue-related equipment), check outside safety measures are met, ensure documentation is completed, perform rescue of entrants if deemed necessary, and provide medical treatment.
The Confined Space Entry program is intended to ensure the safe entry of personnel and safe work in areas which have been designated “Confined Spaces”, in accordance with Section 60 of the Occupational Health & Safety Regulations for Construction Projects and Confined Space Regulation O.Reg. 632/05.
It’s important to develop foolproof confined space entry procedures to keep your workers safe. AHT rescue will help your organization assess confined spaces and develop plans detailing hazards, controls and equipment required for each space.
Individuals working in confined spaces must have the proper training. AHT Rescue provides the necessary training for personnel tasked to carry out jobs in confined spaces.
