Safety Tips: Do's and Don'ts in a Confined Space Emergency


Do in a Confined Space Emergency

  • In a confined space emergency, the first thing you should do is report the situation immediately to the entry supervisor, who will notify the emergency rescue team.
  • If the entrants can perform a self-rescue safely, keep in contact with them throughout the entire procedure, and assist them in any way possible without actually entering the space.
  • If a non entry rescue is required and you are trained, equipped, and authorized to perform a no entry rescue, proceed with this procedure, keeping in constant contact with entrants.
  • If the space must be entered to rescue entrants, keep in contact with entrants, if possible, let them know that help is on the way, and wait for the rescue team to arrive.
Don'ts in a Confined Space Emergency

Why It Matters
