Construction Confined Spaces

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA

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

Working in confined spaces presents unique hazards including exposure to toxic atmospheres and physical entrapment. Construction personnel must understand the risks and take all proper precautions when doing confined space work. This online certification course covers important safety training topics to help workers understand the hazards associated with confined spaces in construction worksites.

This confined space course provides information on recognizing, evaluating, and controlling confined space hazards. Confined spaces training course content details applicable regulations; risks and dangers; worker protection; role of initial atmospheric testing and ongoing monitoring; the entry permit and the permit space safety program; the non permit confined space; examples of accidents and fatalities in confined spaces; and duties and responsibilities of key confined space personnel.

This course is for:
This confined space construction training is designed for construction industry professionals, including but not limited to contractors, entrants, entry supervisors, competent persons, and safety managers. Entrants are employees entering and working within a confined space, while attendants are those tasked with assisting with entry into the confined space, but not actually entering themselves.

This online certification course meets OHSA confined space training requirements for the construction industry.

Case Study: In 2004, a construction worker was found unconscious at the bottom of a newly constructed sewer pipe for a housing development. He had been working alone, grouting cracks after a vacuum test found that the pipe had atmospheric leaks. The medical examiner requested an air sample of the manhole, and it was found to have low oxygen levels. After a second test, the area was found to have unusually high levels of carbon dioxide, a common part of the air we breathe. In this case, the carbon dioxide was present in dangerously high amounts. This is common in areas with a lot of limestone, since acid leached from the soil produces carbon dioxide when it contacts limestone, and this then displaces the oxygen in the area, especially after a vacuum test. Carbon dioxide is colorless and odorless, so the worker could not have known the area was dangerous without using specialized equipment. In this case, the employer had not obtained a permit for this confined space, which would have required an atmosphere test.

Key Takeaway: Not all hazards are immediately obvious. This is why testing and monitoring are extremely important for your safety, as is having someone monitoring a confined space while the entrant works. The person in this case was luckily rescued, but these regulations are in place so that no one has to rely on luck to save their lives.

OSHA standards are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards. Confined spaces in construction are covered in OSHA 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.

    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 are responsible for ensuring new personnel complete confined space training before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to permit-required and non-permit confined spaces.

Additional training is required whenever there is a change in assigned duties, a change in confined space operations that presents new hazards, or whenever deviations from the safety procedures are observed. This confined space construction training online course meets these initial and refresher training requirements.

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