Construction workers, maintenance workers, technicians, and more need to adhere to certain safety guidelines in order to ensure the safety of themselves on others. Some of these industries require technical rescue training to minimize the likelihood of falling incidents and also increase the knowledge of what to do if an incident were to occur. For those new to industries that require this training, you may be asking, “What is technical rescue training?”
“Technical rescue” can refer to a number of techniques to saving lives or property, employing use of tools and skills that are usually reserved for firefighters, medical emergency personnel, and other rescue professionals. Types of technical rescue include rope rescue, confined space rescue, bucket truck rescue, high angle rescue, and much more. It is a requirement of these trainings to meet the standards of the National Fire Protection Association. The standards set in NFPA 1670 and 1006 must be met in order for the training to be valid.
Are you unsure how to receive proper technical rescue training? Texas Rope Rescue will work with your “authority having jurisdiction” and create a curriculum based on NFPA 1670. All of our classes are custom-built to fit your team’s needs and are built upon skill sets featured in NFPA 1006. Contact us to learn more about our on-site rescue training classes today.
When working in various industries such as construction or maintenance, there are certain safety guidelines to adhere to to minimize falling incidents or to know what to do if that situation occurs. These regulations come from The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) are under the Department of Labor and work with the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) which is under the Center for Disease Control. Together, these departments track trends in occupational accidents/injuries and create standards to prevent incidents from occurring again.
Thanks to these OSHA guidelines, you can help make your workplace a much safer place by making sure your employees adhere to them. However, reading through all of the guidelines and putting them into effect in your workplace may be difficult and lengthy, but we’re here to help with that. We offer OSHA training that complies with the following sections of the OSHA guidelines:
- 1910.146 – Permit Entry Confined Space
- 1910.147 – Lockout / Tagout
- 1910.134 – Respiratory needs (IDLH)
- 1915 Subpart B – Confined and Enclosed spaces and other dangerous atmospheres in shipyard employment
- Suspension Trauma and Orthostatic intolerance
- 1910.120 – HazWOPR
- 1910.132 – Fall Protection
- 1910.269(a)(2)(i)(B) – Rescue from Pole top, Transformer, Electrical
- 1915.159 – fall protection
- 1926 Subpart AA – Confined space rescue in construction
- 1926.502/503 – fall protection and rescue
Of course, the OSHA training requirements vary from workplace to workplace and depend on the work activities your employees are actually performing. Title 8 of the Code of Regulations (T8CCR) contains all of the OSHA regulations if you are interested in reading about them in more detail.

Before I retire I just want to let you know how much I appreciate working with you as our vendor to provide Fall Protection and Confined Space training to our Construction and Maintenance workers. From the beginning you’ve been professional, yet flexible and very easy to work with, willing to accommodate our needs and policies. I was especially impressed when you and your instructors developed a way to do both trainings on the same day so our workers only needed to attend one day of training instead of two. You put our needs before your profit and I don’t know many companies who would do that. Thank you.
All the feedback I’ve heard from the workers who’ve attended your trainings has been positive. They enjoyed the class and thought they got good information and skills from it. Our Safety Specialists who have monitored the trainings have been more than satisfied with the knowledge and ability of you and your instructors. All around, your company has been impressive. I’m glad I got the chance to work with you.
Good luck in the future. I know you will be successful and help make the world a safer place.

Working with drill rigs can be hazardous for a number of reasons, so maintaining a safe work space is always an important task. One potential risk associated with drilling rigs is the height of rigs, and therefore how to safely help someone who may need it that is at an elevated height. For this reason, making sure your team has proper rescue from heights or high angle rescue training is essential to being prepared if this situation arises.
Typically, a high angle rescue situation requires being able to access, disentangle, extricate, package and lower a patient. With rescue from heights or high angle rescue training, your team can gain basic knowledge from the simple start of understanding harnesses to the more specific skill of getting a patient in a basket and to safety. You can trust that the well-rounded and step by step knowledge during training will ensure your team is ready if an emergency arises.
Since sacrificing a day of work to travel somewhere for training isn’t ideal, rescue from heights or high angle rescue training that comes to you can help you stay prepared while not sacrificing a lot of time. It will also get your team prepared for you site, which is where they will have to execute these skills if need be. For this kind of service, look to Texas Rope Rescue. We’ve been training personnel in the industry since 2000 in scenario-based training, not canned classes that aren’t appropriate for the types of rescues you may need to execute.

Welcome to the Texas Rope Rescue Blog. Texas Rope Rescue has provided on-site rescue classes nationwide since 2000. Many training classes available previously went over types of rescue training that many companies had no use for in their specific field. It is through our custom designed, on-site safety and rescue training that our clients are finally able to receive the training to fit their needs.
Our team takes pride in providing scenario-based training specifically designed for the needs of our clients. This includes rope rescue training, confined space training, pole top rescue training, and many more safety and rescue training classes. Evolution in search and rescue training with new technology, new equipment and techniques doesn’t mean that the training process has to be more complex. In fact, it is our belief to master the basics through a simple approach that everyone can pick up on. Other training teams make the search and rescue training so specialized and unique that the need for refresher training is a lot higher. We like to make the training simple and efficient so that in times of need you will be able to execute the rescue without even second-guessing what steps you need to take.

Re: High Angle/Confined Space Rescue Class
I highly recommend the Rescue training services provided by Texas Rope Rescue. They recently provided a customized on-site rescue training class at our manufacturing facility in Dallas, Texas. The instructors were highly skilled and their training methodologies were easily learned by our teams. The class by far was some of the best hand-on training we have had. Additionally safety was paramount with the instructors.
