Confined Space Entry

The Confined Space Entry course is designed to keep entrants or those working around confined spaces safe. Are your employees working in or around tanks, trenches, pipelines or marine vessels? If so, they may be working in spaces that OSHA considers “confined” spaces because those spaces can limit their ability to move freely in and out and are not designed for continuous occupancy. These spaces are large enough to enter but employees sometimes do not recognize the hazards associated with entry. Confined spaces might include tanks, tankers, rail cars, storage containers, silos, pits, underground vaults, pipelines, barges, boilers, exhaust stacks and marine vessel tanks. To each confined space the question expands to whether your employees are exposed or have the potential to be exposed to a hazardous atmosphere, or does the space present a configuration or engulfment hazard that could trap or asphyxiate an entrant, or does the space have any other recognizable hazards. If so, the space is a permit-required confined space requiring additional scrutiny and safety protocols, equipment or procedures. Employees satisfactorily completing the Confined Space Entry course will meet the requirements of OSHA standard 29 CFR 146 and will be able to identify confined spaces and permit-required confined spaces, and apply atmospheric monitoring, engineering and administrative controls, and PPE selection principles to work safely & compliantly in confined spaces.
