STAND-BY RESCUE TEAMS:
Should an emergency arise, stand-by rescue team will notify the appropriate local municipal public safety authority while responding to the site of the emergency. After the on-site rescue team has extracted the injured employee(s), basic first aid techniques will be implemented and will continue until the proper authorities arrive.
CONFINED SPACE ATTENDANT:
The confined space attendant ensures the safety of the client's employees and/or contract vendors. The attendant will know the site hazards, the signs of exposure to hazardous materials, continually maintain an accurate count of authorized entrants in a permit-required confined space, continually monitor site conditions, summon rescue and emergency services if an emergency arises, and order evacuations if the site is not safe.
FIRE WATCH SERVICES:
The fire watch will inspect any area designated as hazardous for any type of welding, burning, sparks, or open flame. The fire watch will check the hot work permit and permit tags and ensure the area is as free as possible from fire hazards and that proper precaution has been taken to prevent igniting combustible materials. The fire watch will also inspect the fire-extinguishing equipment, limit unauthorized use of flame or spark-producing equipment, and communicate with and coordinate the departments concerned with fire protection.
AIR TECHNICIAN SERVICES:
The air technician operates and maintains the on-site supplied air system. Specifically, the technician will determine site-specific equipment needs and procedures; set up appropriate SAR equipment for personal use; monitor air supply and equipment usage; and recover, inspect for readiness, and re-supply consumed or inoperable equipment.
