Many workers are injured and killed each year while working in a confined space.
An estimated 60% of the fatalities have been among would-be rescuers. A confined space can be more hazardous that regular workspaces for many reasons.
Our staff is comprised of emergency service members who are certified confined space standby rescue specialists. We act as part of a confined space rescue team where entry into IDLH environments would be required to rescue an injured worker. Our members certification and training meet and exceeds WorkSafeBC requirements and includes patient packaging, SCBA and SAR use, chemical protection, rescue pre-plans, gas monitoring and ventilation.
The next time you are required to enter a confined space on your jobsite contact Provincial Fire and Safety. We can help you exceed regulatory requirements and keep your staff safe.
Provincial Fire and Safety strives to provide the highest quality educational experience by providing career emergency response instructors to guide you to success. Remember, we bring the training to you. Contact us to schedule a course for your department.
