New Zealand Urban Search & Rescue
Best Practice Guideline: Confined Space Rescue Tier Model.
 
Introduction
Scope
This guideline is recommended for use by any organisation responding to confined space rescueoperations (includes non-USAR environments).
Purpose
This guideline has been developed to establish national competency standards for confined spacerescue practitioners regardless of their agency or response environment and has been sponsoredunder the National Urban Search and Rescue Project.The guideline does not define actual techniques, as this is the responsibility of the organisation,although a number of primary references are annexed in this Best Practice Guideline (BPG).It should be noted that due to the primary references being developed for the American industry,compliance must be against the Health & Safety in Employment Regulations 1995 and theAustralian/New Zealand Standard 2865: Working safely in a confined space.The tier model has been used for this guideline and the tiers of Awareness, Responder, andTechnician relate to Awareness, Industry Certificate, and National Certificate respectively under the New Zealand Qualification Authority framework.Confined Space Rescue is heavily reliant on rope rescue techniques and much of the abovequalifications is based on the new rope rescue unit standards. The Best Practice Guideline:
RopeRescue
 
Tier Model 
should be used in conjunction with this guideline.Although the selection and use of resources at confined space rescue incidents is at the discretionof the Incident Controller, the preference to use practitioners qualified to this guideline is stronglyrecommended.
