Instead, lean on First Choice Safety for all of your confined space needs, including assessments, training, and rescue teams.

When it comes to confined space safety, relying on the 9-11, emergency phone number does not meet OSHA compliance and is simply unacceptable. The rescue of an incapacitated confined space worker must be ensured, either through the use of a trained, in-house rescue team or by relying on an outside rescue organization.
First Choice Safety Solutions has a certified confined space rescue team with decades of industrial and municipal rescue experience. If your facility requires occasional or regular confined space work, you can rest easy knowing that First Choice Safety Solutions can meet all of your needs.
