Confined Space 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.

Confined Space FAQs
As soon as the plane of the opening is broken by a body part (hand, foot, head), entry is committed. At that point, numerous OSHA confined space violations have occurred if employees are not properly trained.
The best option is to have onsite training. Due to the unique types of confined spaces that vary per facility, it is more relevant to the student and includes onsite specific scenarios with walkthroughs and practices drills. Training includes practice drills and the use of all rescue equipment.
Training will help your facility develop a confined space program and identify and label all confined spaces. Additionally, the course will train employees in the roles and responsibilities for entry supervisors, entry personnel attendants, and rescuers. Finally, the course will procure all essential equipment and develop rescue plans for areas that pose difficulties in extrication.
