Confined spaces present unique challenges for workers and require comprehensive understanding of diverse hazards as well as permitting processes. EI safety professionals are available to identify your qualifying confined spaces, provide onsite assessments of hazards, debate program options and deliver training on a variety of procedural levels.
Confined space responsibility and training requirements often depend on the rescue options available to your facility. Planning is crucial, and EI safety professionals recognize that an emergency situation should not be the instance when you realize your program has deficiencies.
Confined Space Training
EI’s confined space training focuses on the complexities of the permit process such as understanding the difference between alternate entry and reclassifying a confined space. EI safety professionals are well-versed on the Confined Space Standards and work to simplify these challenges by sharing their unique expertise in terms of atmospheric hazards, engulfment hazards, entrapment hazards and a wide variety of other hazards common to confined spaces.
EI offers instruction at the awareness, rescue non-entry and rescue entry levels, as well as a Train-the-Trainer option for rescue non-entry. EI safety professionals will work with your existing equipment (PPE, rescue devices, harnesses, gas meters, etc.) and ensure workers understand all of the responsibilities involved with the distinctive roles on a confined space entry team.

Ladder safety is critical in the workplace to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of employees. Each year in the U.S. there are more than 164,000 emergency room-treated injuries and 300 deaths that are caused by falls from ladders. An estimated 81% of fall injuries treated in hospital emergency rooms involve a ladder. In most situations, ladders were used improperly. The most frequent ladder injuries include broken bones and head injuries. This is why it is crucial for employers to comply with ladder safety requirements set by regulatory bodies like OSHA and ANSI.
