100% Guaranteed To Meet Your Regulatory Requirements
Confined spaces present potential hazards that could harm you or others working around you. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all workers who may perform duties in a confined space to receive essential training under Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1910.146 “Permit-Required Confined Spaces.” This training promotes a safe work environment and explains the proper procedures for working within them. Workers must complete this training before performing their duties, and employers may need space safety training before allowing workers to enter a confined space.
OSHA Confined Space Training Online
Confined space training is essential for all workers entering or performing duties in a confined space. These spaces are dangerous and require quick exits in emergencies. Communication and mobility are limited in a confined space, and knowing proper procedures will help keep you and those around you safe.
Confined Space training is essential for industries such as:
Our online training course will provide you with all the information and resources you need to identify a confined space, understand your responsibilities in such areas and the limitations of your equipment and determine proper entry procedures.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS?
Employees who may enter confined spaces with potential hazards are required to receive OSHA confined space safety training. This includes confined space attendants and entrants.
- Are you required to enter confined spaces?
- Do you work as an attendant in a confined space job?
- Do you work in pits, tanks, silos, tunnels or pipes at your job?
- Do you conduct work in or enter permit-required confined spaces?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are required to take this course! Our online OSHA confined space training course is designed to comply with OSHA’s standard for confined spaces and safety procedures, which contains the requirements for procedures and practices to protect employees from hazards they may encounter when entering permit spaces, or permit-required confined spaces. The OSHA Confined Space standard requires employers to create a written permit program for confined space entry and train employees in confined space safety.
What Is Considered a Confined Space?
According to OSHA, a “confined” space has a configuration that hinders employee activity. These spaces have limited or restricted exits and entries, and employees cannot continuously occupy them. Confined spaces include tanks, storage bins, manholes, silos, process vessels, pipelines, vaults and pits.
OSHA defines permit-required confined spaces as areas with potentially hazardous materials or atmosphere within and/or a configuration that can trap, engulf or asphyxiate. Any confined environment that poses a known safety hazard, such as exposed live wires or loose material, will require a signed permit for an employee to enter. It’s critical to understand the various dangers in order to ultimately save lives.
INDUSTRIES THAT REQUIRE THIS COURSE
Many industries have confined spaces in the workplace. Mining, aerospace, agriculture and emergency response are just a few examples where workers can expect to enter a confined space at any given time. Since protecting workers’ safety and averting tragedy are essential aspects of workplace guidelines and procedures, this OSHA confined space training is essential for many workers, and some employees need it to perform their everyday duties. This course will promote a safe working environment and provide all employees with the necessary information to work in confined spaces safely
WHAT REQUIREMENTS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?
The confined spaces course satisfies the requirements found in 29 CFR 1910.146 and 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA. This course will fulfill initial training and refresher training for employees in the general and construction industry. After completing this course, you will receive certification in compliance with OSHA requirements and regulations that allows you to perform routine duties in confined spaces.
How Often Does OSHA Require Confined Space Training?
Although some OSHA training requires refresher training by a specific time, OSHA confined space training requirements do not mandate specific frequencies for renewal. Instead, they have other training specifications regarding when training should be provided, including:
- Before an employee changes or begins relevant duties
- When a hazard is present that was not initially present due to a change in operations
- Any time an employer believes workers are deviating from the correct entry procedures
- Any time an employer believes workers have inadequate knowledge of the procedures
Employers must review and renew their permit program every year, and any rescue personnel must perform practice rescues at least once a year. Industry leaders suggest that you update your confined space training every couple of years.
What to Expect in Confined Space Training
Before beginning your course, you may have a few questions regarding course specifications. Here, you can find information regarding your course, starting with the topics you can expect to be covered in the course materials. We also go over how to complete this course successfully, deadlines, the grading policy, objectives and certification.
This online training course for working in confined spaces was designed to be comprehensive and offer foundational awareness on both health and occupational hazards. It also includes how the creation and continual assessment of a site-specific or employer-specific permit program help secure personnel safety.
Within the course material, you’ll find the necessary guidelines that employees follow for all permit-required confined space programs. This includes multiple OSHA entry options to permit spaces as well as atmospheric testing and ventilation procedures for ensuring environmental safety. These are necessary topics before any worker begins tasks within confined spaces, especially for new hires.
