Firefighter Confined Space Entry & Rescue

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910.146

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This firefighter confined space training course emphasizes hazard identification and best practices for emergency rescue in or near a confined space. Confined space training topics include applicable OSHA regulations, confined space hazard controls, protective equipment, and phases of confined space rescue operations.

Emergency rescue from a confined space is often a matter of life or death. In many cases, untrained or unprotected would-be rescuers amplify the problem when they enter the space and become victims themselves. Confined space rescue training ensures that firefighters and other emergency service providers are able to respond to confined space incidents effectively and safely.

This course is for:
This confined space training is designed for firefighters who are supervising confined space entry, entering a confined space for rescue efforts, or assisting others with confined space entry. Safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives. This online certification course satisfies the training requirements for the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146 confined spaces standard.

Case Study: A worker died inside a toluene storage tank while attempting to clean it. The worker entered the tank through a top opening, which was 16 inches in diameter, using a rope for descent. He was not wearing a self-contained breathing apparatus, and he was overcome and collapsed to the floor.

In an attempt to rescue the worker, fire department personnel began cutting open the side of the tank. The tank exploded, killing one firefighter and injuring 15 others.
