ARC provides three levels of Confined Space Training: Awareness, Operational and Technician. In addition, we offer CRP, First Aid, AED and BBP.
Awareness level is designed to provide the student with a general knowledge of confined spaces and the ability to identify permit required confined spaces, recognize hazards and keep themselves safe. Awareness training is a didactic lecture and requires four (4) hours.
Operation level training will expand on awareness level training and include procedures that will help mitigate emergencies by non-entry means. Operations level training requires a minimum eight (8) hours.
Technician level training is a technical hands on class that covers OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146: permit required confined space standard and OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1200.AA confined spaces in construction. Technician level training includes but is not limited to: case studies of fatalities and injuries in confined spaces, pre-planning, procedures, confined space permit, hazards of confined spaces, ventilation techniques, decontamination and confined space rescue and equipment (both non-entry and entry). Technician level training, requires twenty-four (24) hours of training as a minimum. This class can be designed to meet your individual needs or requirements.
ARC teaching methodology is state of the art and designed specifically for adult learners. The classroom didactic includes interactive lecture, up-to-date power points and testing. A skills checklist along with a Field Operations Guide is provided for every student.
American Rescue Concepts has a complete cache of confined space rescue equipment to use for making entries into confined spaces and/or deploying for rescue stand-by for your employees. Our extensive equipment cache is certified annually and packaged to travel around the globe.
ARC will provide confined space rescue stand-by compliant with OSHA 1910.146 (K). ARC has the experience, manpower, and equipment to assure your companies compliance with the law. We begin each job by completing a preplan and safety analysis of your job site. This analysis is used as a safety tool by the ARC team in preparation for your employees confined space entry.
American Rescue Concepts will identify the spaces to be entered, mitigate atmospheric, electrical, or mechanical hazards, evaluate ventilation and prepare for rescue entry. ARC relies on two respiratory systems, SCBA or Supplied Air Respirator (SAR). Standby crews will continuously monitor the confined space atmosphere using state of the art four gas monitors which are within calibration and bumped prior to use. Lock out tag out, blanking/blinding and ventilation needs will be addressed. Communication is often the key to safety. ARC has three Communications Systems to choose from: hard-line communication, portable radios, and face piece intercoms.
With regard to the possible hazards, a water supply will be identified and a decontamination shelter will be deployed as needed. Tripods, AHD’s, rope rescue packages and patient packaging equipment will be selected according to the confined space configuration. All team members will be stand-by ready to enter the confined space with class III harnesses and the appropriate personal protective equipment.
Why should your company rent, lease or purchase expensive respiratory and rescue equipment? Let our team of professionals take care of your rescue needs. Safety first, make it last!
