Can somebody help me out?
What NFPA Standard outlines the responsibilities and/or even the need/requirement for RIT teams. I am not questioning it, but, everybody has an OPINION of the duties of a rit team, I am just looking for the official.
The best answer I have come up with so far is that rit is a variation of the OSHA 2 in 2 out rule.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks and be safe!
