DOE EM Update – West Valley Training Focuses on Rescuing Injured Workers in Confined Spaces

June 5, 2018 – “EM and its cleanup contractor at the West Valley Demonstration Project recently conducted training to safely rescue an injured person from a confined space.

CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley’s (CHBWV) Pat Douglass and Steve Wedvik, who also serves as a West Valley Volunteer Hose Company assistant fire chief, held the training for employees at an onsite excavation work zone.

“This type of training is great,” CHBWV’s Eric Fuller said. “Training that employs hands-on learning with real-life applications is better than being inside four walls.” Link to article
