  • Dialing 911 for Confined Space Rescue
    space rescues that may be required in their local industrial corridors Any rescue service would need to be trained and equipped in advance to handle the many hazards and obstacles of permit required confined spaces It is the employer s responsibility both morally and legally to engage with the 911 service that is being considered as their confined space rescue service Appendix F of 1910 146 is a very valuable means to ensure that both the rescuers and the employer know what the requirements are and that proper agreements are in place prior to confined space entry operations Roco has provided a sample for you to download Any shortfalls must be addressed This may include lack of training equipment staffing or many other requirements necessary to ensure a response appropriate for the types and hazards of the spaces onsite OSHA states in section d 4 of 1910 146 that the Employer shall provide rescue and emergency equipment needed to comply with paragraph d 9 of this section except to the extent that the equipment is provided by rescue services This is where an employer and a public safety agency may enter a cooperative arrangement beyond what is already expected of the 911 responder s normal duties Funding through grants and other resources has become very lean in the last several years As public safety budgets are trimmed down both career and volunteer fire departments must make budgetary decisions that in many cases result in sacrificing emergency service capabilities beyond firefighting and emergency medical services This would mean that many of the technical rescue capabilities outlined in NFPA 1006 are not within the means of many fire departments The impact on an employer may be that they lose a previously established ability to rely on a 911 agency for their confined space rescue needs or they may not be able to rely on that rescue service option during the development of their permit required confined space program However we also understand that it is becoming more and more common for employers to provide rescue equipment and or funding for rescue training specific to the needs of the employer s confined space program Various state and local requirements may differ but generally this can be accomplished by having the employer set up a grant with monies being donated for specific training or equipment purchases Depending on the local ordinances equipment can be directly transferred from the employer to the 911 agency through a simple agreement that outlines its intended purpose and ownership There may be tax advantages to the employer while benefiting the community as well Bottom line there are critical steps to take before relying solely on a local 911 agency Evaluating Rescue Response Capabilities Appendix F of 1910 146 clearly explains the need for employers to evaluate a prospective rescue service before depending upon their services It states Merely posting the service s number or planning to rely on the 911 emergency phone number to obtain these services at the
