Example text

It isn’t uncommon for a department to assess a bulk storage facility for the purposes of firefighting and completely ignore its potential for being the scene of a confined-space operation. Another task that a department faces is to assess its resources at hand, both internal and external. Falling under the category of internal resources, of course, are those that an organization holds in its own inventory, such as apparatus, tools, team-related equipment, breathing apparatus, communications equipment, special teams, and general staffing.

The levels of training and response capabilities. 5. The phases of a confined-space operation. 6. Making fundamental determinations, such as those related to size-up, the risk-to-benefit analysis, operational mode (rescue versus recovery), and the like. 7. Recognizing and controlling hazards. 8. Understanding the need for, use, and limitations of equipment. 9. Selecting proper breathing apparatus. 10. Atmospheric monitoring. 11. Basic ventilation concepts. 12.

Certainly everything that municipal responders do is under the microscope of public scrutiny. Many organizations face the loss of public funding, and in some cases a lack of confidence. Yet each time we respond, there is always a chance that something will go wrong. In reality, responders must practice risk management in everything that they do. As they say, if it’s predictable, it’s preventable. This text will attempt to describe the predictable aspects of a confined-space operation so that you can create the five pillars of success and risk reduction, namely people, policy, training, supervision, and discipline.
