Why This Course Is Essential
Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines.
Are you required to work in or around confined spaces? If so, our brand new Confined Space Entry Training course is what you need. This course will show you how to work in a confined space environment to maximize safety for you and those around you, as well as certify you under the OSHA Confined Space standard 29 CFR 1910.146.
OSHA uses the term “permit-required confined space” (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant; has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant; or contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
The objective of this training is to protect those entering or working around a confined space. In our course you will learn the physical, chemical, and biological principles related to safe working with confined spaces.
Examples of workers who may need confined space training include firefighters, oilfield workers, marine workers, construction workers, maintenance technicians, building engineers, lab technicians, welders, pipeline workers, HVAC technicians, emergency response personnel, and many more occupations.

- Identifying A Confined Space
