Confined Space Supervisor Course

This 8 Hour Confined Space Supervisor Course was built from the OSHA standard for permit-required confined space safety in general industry – CFR 1910.146, and is taken entirely online.

OSHA defines a confined space as an area that is (1) large enough and so configured that an employee can bodily enter and perform assigned work and (2) has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and (3) is not designed for continuous employee occupancy.  If this describes the type of space you may be entering, then this course is for you.

For those students that do not need the 8 hour course, we also offer a 2 hour Confined Space Awareness Course.
