Confined space training can take on many forms. The Grainger Safety Services network offers two types of rescue training: non-entry and entry. Entry training is more complex and requires a great deal more prep and training. This involves rescue personnel who are trained, qualified and authorized to use breathing equipment such as SCBAs. The training will also include the use of ropes and methods for removing entrants by means other than a body harness.

The majority of class time will be spent in hands-on skills practice, using a 2:1 student-to- mannequin ratio.

Hazard Communication (HAZCOM/GHS) Training
In 1992, the UN Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED) established six program areas to strengthen national and international efforts related to the environmentally sound management of chemicals. Among these was the “harmonization of classification and labeling of chemicals.” The UN Committee of Experts for the Transport of Dangerous Goods and the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals formally adopted the GHS in December 2002 and it was most recently revised in 2011. In the U.S., the government agency that regulates MSDSs and labels is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Rather than promulgate a new regulation, OSHA has chosen to modify the existing Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). The Grainger Safety Services network offers comprehensive employee training surrounding Hazard Communication and GHS.
