OSHA Confined Space Training
Working within confined spaces is dangerous and challenging work. To help alleviate the risk, OSHA requires in-depth confined space training for all workers who are either exposed to or have the potential of being exposed to the hazards of working within a confined space. Confined spaces can be found on job sites in many areas including manholes, pipelines, pits, silos, tanks, and storage bins.
Our on-site confined space training program is designed to protect authorized employees that will enter confined spaces and may be exposed to hazardous atmospheres and conditions. During our training program, employees will learn how to work with the limitations that these spaces present and identify hazardous conditions.
OSHA Confined Space Training Requirements
The OSHA confined space certification is required for all supervisors of confined space entry, all employees who enter or work within a confined space, and all individuals tasked with assisting with the entry into a confined space.
