Part of: Certificate in OSHA Compliance, Certified by the US National Safety Council
Confined spaces incidents aren't the most common, but they can be the most deadly. That's because the hazards tend to be misunderstood or underestimated. And many confined spaces fatalities involve not one, but two, victims: the worker and the rescuer.
OSHA's Permit-Required Confined Spaces Regulation was created to help prevent these incidents. And the National Safety Council's Confined Spaces Compliance Training Seminar can help you put the regulation into practice and save lives.
Through discussion and activities, our professional facilitator will break down the regulation into terms you can understand. In just four hours, you'll learn practices and procedures that will keep you in compliance and, best of all, protect your employees.
The course covers:
- Confined spaces concepts and terminology
- Key elements of the OSHA Permit-Required Confined Spaces Regulation (29 CFR 1910.146)
- Confined Space Hazards
- Employer obligations
- Permit required entry program
- Hot work permits
- Fall protection
- Rescue and retrieval
- Reclassifying permit spaces
- Alternate entry procedures
- Atmospheric management
- The assignment of roles and responsibilities

The course completion will include a summary and assessment. Students must score 80% or better to pass. After successful completion of the above course, participants also will be awarded a National Safety Council Certificate of Completion.
