Course Information

Confined Spaces

For Faculty, Non-Hospital Staff

Confined spaces training discusses OSHA's Confined Space Standard (29 CFR 1910.146), evaluation of a confined space, signage requirements, confined space hazards, entry requirements and procedures, job tasks, emergency situations and responses, and training requirements.

This 1-hour training class is mandatory for all employees who have the potential to work in or supervise entry into a confined space or permit-required confined space (e.g., building engineers, steam plant workers). A confined space is a space that is large enough and so configured that an employee can bodily enter and perform assigned work, has limited or restricted means for entry or exit (e.g., tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, and pits), and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. A permit-required confined space is a confined space that has one or more of these characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; contains a material that has the potential for engulfing an entrant; has an internal configuration that might cause an entrant to be trapped or asphyxiated by inwardly converging walls or by a floor that slopes downward and tapers to a smaller cross section; and/or contains any other recognized serious safety or health hazard(s).

NOTE: Please print the training booklet for reference during the lecture class.

A cancellation fee of $50.00 will be assessed if you do not cancel your registration at least 10 business days in advance.
