OSHA Permit required Confined Space Entry

29 CFR 1910.146 Online training & certification

Entering and working in confined spaces is a high-risk job. It is crucial that all persons involved in a confined space entry - supervisors, entrants, and attendants - understand the potential hazards and strictly adhere to safe work practices and entry procedures.

Confined spaces include (but are not limited to) underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines.
