How can training prevent future failures?

How can training prevent future failures?Lt. Scott Goodwin, COSS Here we are some months later from when I last wrote about the substantial losses in confined space entry and rescue.  Most recently there were two workers who just perished in North Carolina entering into a manhole.   As tragic as this incident was, the fire department thankfully did their job and monitored the space prior to entry.  The culprit was oxygen deficiency!  What started as a normal work day ended with the worker and…See More

Confined Space Rescue Hierarchy

Confined Space Rescue HierarchyBy Scott Goodwin, COSSWith all of the recent talk on confined space incidents and what has gone wrong during the rescues it is time to talk about the different types of rescues and the options that are available in a rescue. As a fire officer and confined space rescue technician, you should not be relying on the local fire department to be your rescue team. This is the most common mistake and is also a possible OSHA violation. Secondly, most rescuers lack confined…See More
