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 to maximize safety for you and those around you, as well as certify you under the OSHA Confined Space standard 29 CFR 1910.146.
From OSHA: 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.
What is 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 a confined space that has 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 hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
The overall objective of this safety training is to protect those entering or working around a confined space and allow them to identify potential hazards. In this course you will learn the physical, chemical, and biological principles related to maintaining safety while working with confined spaces.
