8 Hour OSHA Confined Space Entry Training

Confined Space Training Conducted On-Site

This course develops employee awareness regarding the dangers they may encounter while working in and around confined spaces. OSHA regulations associated with permit entry program and working in confined spaces are covered, along with many hazards such as atmospheres, fire/explosions, electrocutions, heat and cold.

Additional lifesaving information will be shared, as well as the need for rescue services. Instructors will review and demonstrate the use of equipment for entry including body harness, lifelines, gas monitoring meters, non-entry rescue devices, tripods and winches.

All companies (not just food processing plants) that contain hazardous confined spaces need confined space training if they intend to enter and perform work activities in or near those confined spaces. Without the proper confined space permit and trained personnel in place, the company is open to multiple citations from OSHA.
