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.
This online course satisfies the training requirements for the OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.146 Permit-required Confined Spaces Standard.
Who must take this course?
This training is required for persons supervising confined space entry, entrants - employees entering and working within a confined space, and attendants - those persons tasked with assisting with the entry, but not actually entering themselves.
