Welcome to our 1.5-hour online course on Confined Space - Deadly Space. This course is designed for emergency medical technicians to understand the potential dangers associated with confined spaces and how to safely navigate these situations.
Through a series of interactive modules, you will learn about the hazards that exist in confined spaces, such as toxic gases, lack of oxygen, and physical hazards. We will also discuss how to assess and control risks before entering confined spaces, including proper ventilation, personal protective equipment, and communication with other team members.
You will also gain knowledge on how to respond in an emergency situation, including techniques for extricating victims, performing basic life support, and providing medical treatment.
By the end of this course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the dangers posed by confined spaces and the necessary precautions and procedures to mitigate these risks. You will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to respond to emergencies in confined spaces and provide essential care to those in need.
This 1.5-hour online course is designed to provide emergency medical technicians with a comprehensive understanding of the potential dangers associated with confined spaces and how to safely navigate these situations.
Confined spaces are areas with limited means of entry and exit and are not designed for continuous occupancy. They can be found in a variety of workplaces, including construction sites, factories, and warehouses. While confined spaces can be necessary for certain tasks, they can also pose significant hazards to workers and emergency responders, such as toxic gases, lack of oxygen, and physical hazards.
The course is divided into several interactive modules that cover a range of topics related to confined space safety. In the first module, we will discuss the types of confined spaces, the hazards that may be present, and the potential risks associated with each. This will include an overview of the signs and symptoms of common confined space injuries and illnesses, such as asphyxiation, burns, and drowning.
In the second module, we will focus on how to assess and control risks before entering confined spaces. This includes proper ventilation, testing and monitoring for hazardous conditions, and ensuring that all team members are properly equipped with personal protective equipment. We will also discuss communication procedures and the importance of having a rescue plan in place before entering a confined space.
The third module will cover emergency response procedures in the event of an incident in a confined space. This will include techniques for extricating victims, performing basic life support, and providing medical treatment. We will also discuss the importance of continuous monitoring of the environment to ensure that it remains safe for both the victim and responders.
Finally, the course will conclude with a review of key takeaways and a quiz to test your knowledge.
By the end of this course, you will have a thorough understanding of the hazards and risks associated with confined spaces and the necessary precautions and procedures to mitigate these risks. You will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to respond to emergencies in confined spaces and provide essential care to those in need.
