Roco was, at the time, a leader in what was referred to as Structural Rescue (now referred to as Technical Rope Rescue, or simply Rope Rescue). As Roco developed and refined specialized rope techniques for the fire service and law enforcement, the industrial safety world was identifying an alarming trend of serious and fatal incidents in confined spaces. As emergency responders themselves, Roco personnel soon recognized and saw first-hand the impact that improved safety and rescue training could have on industrial responders. And, that’s how it all began.
When OSHA first developed its permit-required confined space regulation (29 CFR 1910.146), Roco provided input from its industrial rescue experience to help maximize the effect the standard would have in preventing and successfully managing incidents. In fact, OSHA later approved Roco’s Confined Space Types Chart as one acceptable method to classify confined spaces. Roco continues to provide recommendations and request updated interpretations to assist our customers with their compliance needs.
