Confined Space Services
We know that safety is the number one priority when working in a confined space environment. That’s why Rose Rock offers two crucial areas of service that adhere to OSHA regulations relating to confined spaces, as well as the NFPA 1670 and 1006 standards.
Confined Space Entry
Cleaning the residue from crude oil, condensate, or hydrocarbon fuels that have been stored in tanks requires training, gear, and the know-how to safely and effectively complete the task.
Rose Rock’s authorized entrants and attendants have completed confined space entry and respirator training requirements. Our team follows protocol for continuously identifying workers within a confined space, maintaining visual contact and a clear line of communication, monitoring the atmosphere for toxic and dangerous gases, and sounding appropriate alarms in the event an incident occurs. We monitor conditions and activities both inside and outside to ensure that all safety rules and procedures are followed for the entire duration of entry and cleaning operations. Rose Rock offers support in the following areas of service:
- Tank cleaning
- Turnaround specialists
- Air monitoring
- Attendant and supervisor services
Confined Space Technical Rescue Services
As an additional layer of protection for entrants, we also provide technical rescue services. If an emergency situation occurs within a confined space, the entrant will be extricated by the Rose Rock Standby Rescue Team. This is accomplished with the assistance of “in place” rescue tools including a supplied air rescue trailer, 3-to-1 hauling system, hand winch, sked (immobilization and packaging device used for extrication), cervical immobilization device, as well as a backboard and stokes basket. If first aid response is required, Rose Rock personnel will provide basic life support commensurate with their level of training until 911 emergency care arrives. Our crew members are trained and recertified annually in confined space entry and rescue and our services observe all OSHA requirements.
Rose Rock Standby Rescue Team Leaders are trained in:
- Standby confined space rescue
- High angle rescue
- Tower rescue
- Wind farm rescue
- Industrial first response (medical)
- Pre-hospital trauma care
