Confined Space Entry & Rescue

Overview :

Confined Space Entry & Rescue

The Confined Space Entry Training Program offered at Arresting You Ltd. was developed from the following Alberta OHS 2009 Codes and applicable sections from CSA Z1006-10.

Part 2, Hazard Assessment, Elimination and Control Part 5, Confined Spaces Part 7, Emergency Preparedness and Response, Part 10, Fire & Explosion Hazards

The premise of the program is training for personnel who are responsible for the supervision of an entry as well as information for workers who will enter the confined space or be a tending worker.

Specific topics of discussion include:

  1. Roles & Responsibilities (management, supervisor, tending worker, entrant)
  2. Hazard Assessment & Classification of Confined Spaces (Level 1,2,3)
  3. Atmospheric Testing
  4. Ventilation & Purging
  5. Isolations & Lockouts
  6. Communications
  7. Personal Protective Equipment
  8. Emergency Response Plan
  9. Entry Permit

Practical Exercises are used to assist the participants with planning, permitting, entry and safe evacuation. A sample rescue response plan deals with worker evacuation and non- entry rescue to explain the potential complexities of a rescue from specific confined spaces. This program is a prerequisite to the Confined Space Rescue Training Program.

The 50/50 Theory/Practical training program is accomplished in 6-8 hours. The program is limited to a maximum of 15 participants. Closed (Company) Programs have a minimum of 10 participants.

A theory exam (pass mark 70%) and a hands-on skills evaluation (Pass/Fail) ensures that the candidate has the knowledge and has demonstrated the basic skill to plan an entry.

The Arresting You Ltd. Certificate is valid for 3 years.

The cost of the Program is $150.00 per participant plus GST.
