Employees will be trained in depth to identify types of confined spaces; the specific risks and hazards of confined spaces, and emergency procedures so employee can perform duties assigned. Includes training on attendant, entrant, and entry supervisor duties. Employees will be trained on basic atmospheric testing procedures, general ventilation practices, and common entry procedures for both General Industry and Construction. Participants will practice making confined space rescues by simulating rescue operations in which they remove manikins or actual persons from confined spaces.
What is a confined space: A confined space has the following characteristics: Its size and shape allow an employee to enter it, it has limited means for employees to enter and exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Examples include sewers, pits, tanks, crawl spaces, attics, boilers, and many more.
Who Should Attend: Required for employees who enter or preform confined space work. Initial training required and refresher training required whenever workplace processes/procedures change.
Safety Equipment Required: Attending employees shall bring hardhat, safety glasses, work gloves, boots, and proper work clothing for participation in the confined space practical entry exercise.
Completion Requirements: Students are required to be present and actively participate in all learning activities including hands-on exercises and written exam to receive certification. The presentation and materials are in English (Spanish translated classes are available upon request).
