Confined space rescue team

Confined space rescue team

Why should you hire a confined space surveillance/rescue team?

There are many risks associated with working in confined spaces; air quality, getting stuck, electrocution, cave-ins, extreme temperatures, etc. As a manager, you need to make sure you have a qualified team that is able to execute a rescue operation in case of emergency. Hiring a Targe team ensures that you comply with Quebec’s laws and standards, so you can focus on your daily operations.

Anatomy of a confined space rescue team

Our tactical confined space teams consist of 3 responders (a team leader, a paramedic, and a rescuer). When respiratory protection is needed or if a situation poses a specific risk, one or more additional responders may be required.

 

  • Standard rescue team (3 responders)
  • D.I.V.S. rescue team (4 responders)
  • Advanced rescue team (5 responders)
  • Confined space supervisor (1 responder)

OUR CONFINED SPACE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM AND OUR RESCUE PROCEDURES ARE COMPLIANT WITH THE LAWS IN EFFECT BASED ON CSA-Z1006 AND NFPA 1006 STANDARDS.

Benefits of using a Targe team

1

Positive effect on employee satisfaction

Our rescue teams promote a healthy and safe work environment. Employees feel more confident while they work, and as a result, they perform even better!

Turnkey solution

When you hire one of our rescue teams, you are no longer responsible for training your employees in confined space rescue. We also provide you with the life-saving equipment you need, which would otherwise be very expensive.

3

Legal compliance

We take full accountability for each rescue operation; prevention, recommendations, response plan evaluation, and rescue. We always make sure to return people in distress to safety as soon as possible.
