Confined Space Training With Ronin Safety and Rescue

Do you enter into Confined Spaces?

Are you aware of the hazards that exist with confined spaces?

Are you aware that confined spaces could have little or no oxygen? Or have explosive gasses inside? Or have other toxic chemicals inside? Or they may be absolutely fine.

Statistics show that 6 of 10 would be rescuers in confined space emergencies become victims themselves. How can you mitigate these risks?

Primarily by documentation and training.

Ronin Instructors not only teach confined space awareness, gas monitoring, supervisor and rescue courses; they are required to work on our job sites as confined space rescue team leaders, confined space attendants, conduct atmospheric monitoring and act as confined space responsible supervisors. The experience they gain on active sites allows them to ensure our students are receiving relevant information.

Our instructors work with local regulatory bodies to ensure they have the most up to date information on the legal requirements you will require to work in confined spaces safely. With our instructors backgrounds in adult education techniques, professional rescue and real world experience, students will learn what they need to know about confined spaces in a logical, easily understood manner.

Confined Space Rescue Training for Industry – Non IDLH

EOCP -1.6 CEU’s

Course Duration: Instructed in English – 2 days;
Instructed in translation – 4 days
Course Format: Classroom and practical exercises
Certification: Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion
Prerequisites: Principles of Confined Space or equivalent

This course is intended for individuals that will be employed as rescue persons in a confined space capacity, but not in an IDLH environment. Personnel are trained in not only the hazards and entry requirements of confined spaces, but also some* of the required rescue competencies as outlined in NFPA 1006 and NFPA 1670. The competencies include but are not limited to, ropes and knots, hazard recognition and appropriate control measures, patient packaging, atmospheric monitoring and toxicology. The course concludes with practical scenarios of varying difficulty in multiple types of confined spaces. *Industry training is more specific to the work and spaces personnel may be exposed to, rather than following specific NFPA Job Performance Requirements.

At the end of this highly interactive training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify types and classes of confined spaces
  • Comprehend regulations in regards to confined space rescue
  • Utilize hazard recognition and mitigation techniques
  • Perform basic emergency scene management
  • Understand and utilize confined space documentation
  • Choose appropriate ventilation types and techniques
  • Choose and operate personal protective equipment
  • Understand toxicology in relation to monitoring
  • Use atmospheric monitoring equipment
  • Understand team positions and responsibilities
  • Rig rescue systems for confined spaces
  • Understand tripod rigging and use
  • Build simple and compound mechanical advantage systems
  • Utilize rescue ropes and tie applicable knots
  • Package a patient in an appropriate device

NFPA Combo Confined Space and Rope Rescue Awareness & Operations

Course Duration: Instructed in English – 6 days;
Instructed in translation – 12 days
Course Format: Classroom and practical exercises
Certification: Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion
Prerequisites: Online Component (part of registration)

Our 6-day Combination Confined Space/Rope Rescue Awareness & Operations course is a condensed program that takes advantage of the fact that many skills crossover between both disciplines (e.g. creating a mechanical advantage pulley system).  Successful participants will gain the knowledge and skills to be an Operations level rescuer as outlined in NFPA 1006, Chapters 5 & 7.
