Frequently Asked Questions

How does First Choice Safety Solutions assess risks in confined spaces?

Our approach includes a thorough evaluation of the physical and environmental conditions, identifying potential hazards, and understanding the tasks to be performed. This assessment forms the basis of our safety and rescue plans, tailored to mitigate risks effectively. 

What qualifications do your confined space rescue teams have?

Our teams are comprised of certified professionals with extensive training in confined space operations, emergency response, and safety regulations. Their qualifications include, but are not limited to, OSHA Confined Space, High Angle Rescue, and First Aid/CPR certifications.

Why Your Local Fire Department May Not Be Compliant

OSHA 1910.146 states that when employees enter Permit-Required Confined Spaces, employers must "develop and implement procedures for rescuing entrants from permit spaces, for providing necessary emergency services to rescue employees, and requires employers to ensure the rescue of an incapacitated confined space entrant can be affected in a timeframe commensurate with the hazards of the space."

First-Choice Safety Solutions, LLC's trained, and competent stand-by rescue team can help ensure compliance with these requirements.
