  3. May we use 9-1-1 emergency services as our "on-site" rescue?

   What are some examples of a confined space?
   
   Examples include:
  • Servers
  • Pits
  • Tanks
  • Vaults
  • Manholes
  • Wells
  • Silos
  • Trenches
  • Bins
  • Storage
  • Boilers
  • Shafts

   Does the legislation allow us to contract out our rescue provider?
   
   Yes, however rescue personnel must be available for immediate implementation, which requires them to be 
   on scene for the duration of the entry, depending on the hazard classification of the job. Ranging from 
   Low, Moderate or High.
   
   
   May we use 9-1-1 emergency services as our "on-site" rescue?
   
   No, calling 9-1-1 is not considered an "on-site" rescue procedure that is available for 
   "Immediate Implementation". A separate, trained rescue team will be required as detailed in your 
   Confined Space Plan.
   
   
   Is an attendant the same as a rescue team?
   
   No, the attendant has specific responsibilities as outlined in the regulations. During a rescue the
   attendant must remain outside the space. The rescue team is separate from any other work being done
   at the space, they are to be in "ready" status to enact a rescue.
