Confined Space Rescue Plan

January 2, 2020

Working in a confined space can be deadly. Employees are exposed to low oxygen, hazardous gases, electrical shock, and other risks, inside a tight space with limited opportunity for exit.

These hazardous conditions can overcome a worker and put that person’s life at risk. An emergency response plan which includes quick action to be taken by coworkers is critical to the victim’s survival.

Read Rescuing a Worker Trapped in a Confined Space for more information on the dangers of confined spaces, how to develop an emergency response plan, and to view a video of an employer putting its response plan in motion.
