Cal/OSHA Construction Confined Space Entry

Online Training Certification Course

Title 8 CCR Section 3203 & 5156-8

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

Confined spaces may expose workers in the construction industry to many serious hazards, including limited means of communication, lack of breathable air, drowning/engulfment, fire, and inability to self-rescue or be rescued. Specialized training is required for anyone who enters a confined space or monitors those inside a confined space.

This online certification course meets the requirements for confined space safety training in the state of California. It covers important OSHA safety training standards, including explanations of confined space risks, regulations, and safety, such as atmospheric testing, permitting, monitoring, personal protective equipment, and rescue.

This course is for:
Construction workers are often exposed to confined spaces and must be properly trained according to California OSHA standards.

Case Study: At a sheet metal fabrication company, a painter had been assigned to paint the inside of a steel tank. A coworker observed the painter from the top of the tank. The painter stood on the mixing blades that had been built into the inside of the tank to do his work. From above, the coworker had placed a non-explosion-proof halogen lamp over the opening to provide lighting for the painter. Using an airless spray gun, the painter began to spray paint the inside of the tank with an epoxy-based paint, but when the spray gun nozzle hit the lamp, it broke the sealed beam. This ignited the epoxy vapor which caused a flash fire explosion. The painter suffered second- and third-degree burns on his thighs, hands, arms, and chest, and he died from his wounds five days later. The coworker had first- and second-degree burns on his face and neck and broke his arm from falling off the tank in the explosion.

Key Takeaways: The company had no written confined space safety program or any written confined space entry procedures. If there had been a formal program established, the workers might have been aware of the potential fire hazard. With proper education and training, they might have switched the lamp to an explosion-proof lamp instead of a non-explosion-proof one. That simple change might have saved the life of the painter and spared the injuries of the coworker.

    Exam

It will take a MINIMUM of 2 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers must provide training at the time of initial assignment to tasks where an employee may encounter a confined space. Whenever a confined space permit changes due to new or changing hazards or a change to procedures for entry, retraining must occur. This online certification meets the initial training requirements. According to Title 8 CCR, retraining must be provided at least annually following the completion of initial training.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
