The confined space is an issue for some readers. These are the readers that find themselves feeling claustrophobic when placed in tight corners amidst overcrowding in spaces that are limited. In such situations and under extreme duress, there are those who will become panic stricken, so much so that they may just collapse and need urgent medical attention in order to be revived and to prevent any further deterioration to their health. But with confined space rescue training these distressed men and women can be helped.
Bear in mind that confined space rescue training is, let’s just say, not confined to distressed men and women who are prone to claustrophobic lapses. Rescue training applies to pretty much every medical emergency you can think of. Even suicide attempts. Imagine that. And indeed, the ledge outside of a high-rise building does qualify as a confined space. And you can well imagine just how dangerous this is. While waiting for professional emergency rescue teams to arrive, and due to heavy traffic this may take a while, someone close by has to try and keep a handle on the situation.
Given the frighteningly dangerous condition, there is a serious requirement for cool heads. And rescue training does that. Training instructors teach their students how to handle the stress. The quick wit is also able to deal with situations quickly. Someone who has just had a heart attack or stroke, for instance. That distressed person needs to be revived as quickly as possible. And students are taught to do just that, all without the aid of an emergency repair kit. This will be the case in the public space, at any time or any moment.
But in the workplace, trained staff are better equipped with their emergency kit bag.
