Learn about confined spaces, the identification and control of hazards that can be encountered, and key steps to working safely.
Confined spaces are dangerous. Many workers are injured and killed each year while working in confined spaces. An estimated 60% of the fatalities are well-intentioned rescuers. A confined space is more hazardous than other workspaces for many reasons. This 3-part course will educate you on confined spaces, the identification and control of hazards that can be encountered, and key steps to working safely.
This course is equivalent to the general theory and information provided by a classroom course. However, it does not provide the hands-on, workplace-specific training that allows workers to put this information into practice in the workplace. Employers must ensure that this additional workplace-specific training is provided for confined space workers.
Although this course covers the basics of most legal requirements, there may be some variation between jurisdictions. It must be supplemented by further instruction and hands-on training that is specific to the jurisdiction, job, worksite, and equipment.
Average time to complete this course is approximately 3 hours.
Workers (including outside contractors) who enter and perform work in confined spaces in the workplace
Managers, supervisors, health and safety committee members or representatives
Individuals with control or authority over confined spaces or work being performed in confined spaces would also benefit from the course.
This course outlines your legal duties and responsibilities and provides additional focus on details such as establishing and managing a confined space program.
