Confined Space (Permit Required) - Rescue and Emergency Services$20.00 Preparing for unexpected situations that may arise in permit-required confined spaces requires an employer to select a rescue team that is trained, equipped, and available to respond to emergencies in a timely manner. Whether an employer is using an in-house rescue and emergency team or an outside service, it is critical that rescuers have the knowledge, training, and equipment necessary to help endangered authorized entrants escape the enclosed environmental of a confined space with unnecessarily endanger themselves. To assist rescuers in preparing for the particular situations they may face in a confined space emergency, employers must inform them of the hazards that may be encountered during rescue operations. Employers must also provide access to the confined spaces for rescue plan development and drill purposes. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), about 63 occupational fatalities per year in the United States are caused by improper confined space entries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that over 60 percent of the fatalities were would-be rescuers and estimates that 85 percent of deaths and injuries in confined spaces could be prevented, if industry would fully implement sound confined space entry permit programs.
