Elk Employees Trained in Confined Space Rescue

Employees of the Oil & Gas Division of Elk Environmental Services recently completed an intense training program in Confined Space Rescue.

This course was custom designed by Pennsylvania College of Technology, Williamsport, and was a first for Elk and Penn College. The training meets the requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1010.146. These employees are now trained to perform a rescue in a confined space, such as a silo, tank, manhole, pit or frac tank.

The training included the use of self-contained breathing apparatus during rescue training. This type of specialized training, which included theoretical information and hands-on practice, sets Elk apart from its competitors.

“This is a triple crown win for all - for Elk, for Penn College and for our clients,” said an Elk representative.
