Canada Confined Space Entry

Online Training Certification Course

OHS Safety Standards

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Entry into confined spaces is a necessary but hazardous endeavor, placing personnel in situations that can contribute to injury or death. Confined space safety awareness is critical for workers whose jobs are related to permit-required confined spaces.

This confined space training course details types of confined spaces, as well as the hazards, precautions, and regulations associated with confined spaces. Course topics include preparation for work in a confined space, risk management, and rescue procedures.

This course is for:
Anyone who works within a confined space must receive safety training. This includes, but is not limited to, employees entering and working within a confined space, as well as persons tasked with assisting with confined space entry.

This online training course meets the requirements set forth by the Canada OHS Confined Space Training Standard.

Case Study: While workers were unloading sand from a cement mixing hopper, the material became stuck and stopped dumping from the container. A worker walked along a nearby catwalk with a seven-foot pole, intending to dislodge the sand. Once the worker was near the hopper, he was out of view of the other employees. The top of the hopper was open, and while there was no designated entry point, the hopper was accessible from the catwalk. At some point, the worker entered the hopper. Because no one could see him, no one knows whether he accidentally slipped or if entered the hopper voluntarily. When the sand became dislodged and began moving again, coworkers saw the seven-foot pole fall out of the bottom of the hopper with the sand. They were unable to locate the worker on site, and realized he must have fallen into the hopper. Eventually, rescuers extricated the worker from the bottom of the hopper and administered CPR, but unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Key Takeaway: The worker entered the hopper without a confined spaces plan, and without proper training. The open hopper should have been guarded or sealed to prevent unauthorized or accidental entry. A simple grate or other barricade over the hopper could have prevented this death.

Governing Regulations

There are 14 jurisdictions in Canada - 1 federal, 10 provincial, and 3 territorial. Each jurisdiction has its own health and safety legislation. The Canada Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Regulations are the federal legislation enabled by the Canada Labour Code. Confined spaces are covered in OHS Regulation Part 11: Confined Spaces, as well as CSA Z1006-16. OHS has also created the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OHS Act), which is a document that outlines workers' rights and responsibilities, including the right to stop work that is deemed hazardous or unsafe. OHS also lists the penalties and enforcement techniques to be used if these guidelines are not followed.

To supplement the overarching regulations created by OHS, individual provinces and territories often set their own regulations (in accordance with federal bodies) specific to their needs. Before implementing training classes, ensure that you are familiar with the regulations specific to your province or territory.
