Confined Spaces Training
Do you work in or around confined spaces? If so, our brand-new Confined Space Entry Training course is what you need. This safety course will show you how to work in a confined space environment and identify hazards to maximize safety for you and those around you, as well as certify you under the OSHA Confined Spaces standard 29 CFR 1910.146.
From OSHA: Many workplaces contain confined spaces because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. These confined spaces have limited or restricted means for entry or exit, may contain hazards and are 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.
What is OSHA Confined Space Entry Training?
Confined Space Entry Training is defined under the OSHA Confined Space standard 29 CFR 1910.146. The term “permit-required confined space” (permit space) is used to describe confined spaces that have one or more of the following characteristics or hazards:
- 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
Contains any other recognized safety or health hazards, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
Who Should Take This Course?
Any worker who may potentially need to work in a confined space as described above, will need to have some form of confined space training, depending on the level of work needed. This entry course is approximately 2 hours in length.
Examples of workers who may need confined space entry safety training include firefighters, construction workers, maintenance technicians, building engineers, lab technicians, welders, pipeline workers, HVAC technicians, emergency response personnel, those working general industry safety roles and more.
