Course Description

In compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146 regulations, confined space training is required for individuals who have a role with confined space entry. Training must be provided for these individuals at the start of their job assignment. There are 4 occupations to which confined space entry training applies. They are authorized entrant, safety attendant, supervisor and emergency response personnel.

One of the most dangerous jobs in the industrial setting involves the entry into confined spaces. Many lives are needlessly lost each year by ill-prepared employees, and/or poorly trained entrants or attendants. Entering and working in confined spaces has been and will continue to be an integral part of daily activity by employees. This training course has been developed to ensure the safety of personnel required to enter and conduct work in or around confined spaces. This course reviews safe work procedures for individuals who may participate in a confined space entry operations and is intended to review the many topics pertaining to confined space entry. Educating participants on the risks and hazards associated with confined space entry will not only provide for a safer work environment but will also increase productivity

Course Overview

This training covers the safety and health hazards associated with permit-required confined space entry. Course topics include recognition of confined space hazards, identification of permit and non-permit required confined spaces, use of instrumentation to evaluate atmospheric hazards, ventilation techniques, development and implementation of a confined space program, proper signage, and training requirements. This course features workshops on permit entry classification, instrumentation, and program development. Upon course completion students will have the ability to identify permit and non-permit required confined spaces.

Many work places contain spaces which might be considered to be “restricted” because their configurations hinder the activities of personnel who need to enter into, or go out from them. Commonly, personnel who work in confined areas additionally face increased hazard of exposure to extreme bodily damage from risks along with entrapment, engulfment and unsafe atmospheric conditions. The terms “permit-required confined space” and “permit space” refer to spaces that meet OSHA’s definition of a “confined space” and contain health or safety hazards. For this reason, OSHA requires workers to have a permit to enter these spaces.

Certificates

Upon successful completion of the training, you will receive a total of 3 certificates. An email with an e-certificate will be sent to you or your designee immediately upon completing the course and the original certificates (8×10 and pvc wallet card) will arrive in the mail.

Final Exam

Overview

Before an initial work assignment begins, the employer must provide proper confined space training for all employees who are required to work in permit spaces. Upon completing this training, employers must ensure that employees have acquired the understanding, knowledge and skills necessary for the safe performance of their duties.
The employer is to mark confined spaces that are permit-required. They must identify the hazards of the space and post a permit before allowing authorized employees to enter. Employers posts permits near the entrance of each confined space displaying the necessary information.
– Only Trained and Authorized Entrants are to enter a confined space.
– Emergency rescues should only be made by trained personnel or a rescue service.
– Always report any concerns you may have regarding confined spaces.
Additional confined space training is required when (1) the job duties change, (2) there is a change in the permit space program or the permit space operation presents a new hazard, and (3) when an employee’s job performance shows deficiencies. Training is also required for rescue team members, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first-aid training. Employers must certify that training has been accomplished.
Upon completion of confined space training, employees must receive a certificate of training that includes the employee’s name, signature or initials of trainer(s), and dates of training. The confined space training certification must be made available for inspection by employees and their authorized representatives. In addition, the employer also must ensure that employees are trained in their assigned duties. The term permit-required confined space refers to those spaces that meet the definition of a confined space and contain health or safety hazards, thereby requiring a permit for entry.
