Construction Confined Spaces Competent Person/Supervisor

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA

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

Construction workers often conduct work in confined spaces, which are work areas that are not designed for continuous occupancy and are difficult to exit in the event of an emergency. These spaces present life-threatening hazards such as asphyxiation, engulfment, and inability to be rescued.

The confined space construction supervisor plays a key role in ensuring the safety of all workers and compliance with state and federal requirements pertaining to confined spaces. According to OHSA, a competent person has both the knowledge to recognize a hazard and the authority to correct it. This competent person construction safety training course is designed to ensure entry supervisors have the knowledge and experience necessary to be deemed a competent person.

This course is for:
This confined space construction supervisor online course is designed for anyone who oversees workers at construction worksites with confined spaces. There may be more than one entry supervisor at a worksite, and each supervisor must understand confined spaces training regulations.

Case Study: Two workers were assigned to paint the inside of a steel tank. The entrant was painting with an airless spray gun and epoxy-based paint. The attendant sat on the top of the tank, positioning a 500-watt halogen lamp for light. The entrant nearly finished painting the tank, but when he began to paint the top, the nozzle of the spray gun hit the halogen lamp, breaking the seal and exposing the epoxy vapor to the tungsten filament inside. Halogen lamps work by heating this filament up to 4500° Fahrenheit. Upon contact with the now-exposed heated filament, the latent epoxy vapor caused an explosion. The entrant was able to exit the tank, but sustained second-degree and third-degree burns covering 40 percent of his body. He died in the hospital eight days later.

Key Takeaway: When working in a flammable atmosphere, it is not always obvious what can or will cause ignition. It is very important to ensure that all of your equipment is approved for use in flammable atmospheres, especially within a confined space. Furthermore, a ventilation system would have dispersed some of the fumes, bringing the concentration below ignition level. As a supervisor, you need to verify that a ventilation system is in place, and that all equipment is approved for use with the hazards that may exist in your team's work environment.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA). OHSA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OHSA standards are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards. OHSA 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA details confined space training requirements for the construction industry.

    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.

Pursuant to regulations detailed in 29 CFR 1926.1207, employers must provide safety training for new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to confined space hazards.

The training frequency for additional confined space course offerings is influenced by changes in assigned duties, confined space operations, or observed deviations from defined safety procedures. Annual OSHA confined space training ensures that every worker within a confined space has the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their jobs safely. This online certification course meets these training requirements.

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