Are you required to enter confined spaces?
Do you work as an attendant in a confined space job?
Do you work in sumps, pits, pipes, tanks, silos, or tunnels at your job?
Do you conduct work in or enter permit-required confined spaces?
Then, 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, Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations Part 1910.146 “Permit-Required Confined Spaces,” which contains the requirements for practices and procedures to protect employees in general industry from the hazards of entry into permit-required confined spaces (i.e., permit spaces). The OSHA Confined Space standard requires employers to develop a written confined space entry permit program and provide employee training in confined space safety.
According to OSHA, many workplaces contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who work in them. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined spaces include vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines.
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.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS?
Employees who may enter confined spaces with potential hazards are required to receive OSHA confined space safety training.
What have some of our other students said:
“Excellent course. It was to the point and easy to understand.”
“I enjoyed the illustrations and the detailed descriptions.”
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 training is essential for many workers, and some employees need it to perform their everyday duties.
WHAT REQUIREMENTS DOES THIS COURSE SATISFY?
The confined spaces course satisfies the requirements of general industry training under CFR 29 1910.146. Employers must offer this training on an annual basis as well as to allow workers into any confined space, especially for initial training or modified assignments. The course will meet yearly refresher requirements.
Please note that this course does not satisfy confined space training for the construction industry. Effective 2015, OSHA guidelines make the distinction between general industry employers and the construction industry. Due to the changing conditions at a construction worksite, there are new continuous monitoring measures for physical and atmospheric hazards and the coordination of contract workers. The updated standards fall under CFR 29 1926 Subpart AA.
We recommend checking with your employer or state regulations to confirm if you need to take confined space entry training for the construction industry.
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 helps 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.
The structure and objectives of this online OSHA confined space safety training course are centered around the requirements outlined in the OSHA Confined Space regulation. As a result of successfully completing this training course students will be able to do the following:
- Identify what types of areas are confined spaces, including permit-required confined spaces and non-permit spaces, and to define each term.
- Identify the hazards commonly found in confined spaces, including atmospheric hazards and physical hazards.
- Identify the roles and responsibilities of the Entrant and Attendant as defined by OSHA for various personnel during confined space operations.
- Understand the use and need for a confined space permit.
- Understand basic emergency activities during a confined space emergency, including the hierarchy of rescue.
No prerequisite courses are needed to enroll in this training class. Students may have to complete review sections along the way and a final exam at the end of the course. You will need a computer, cell phone, or iPad with Internet access and an email account. All course materials are available within the confined space safety training course. This is a PowerPoint with audio presentation and will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
Passing this course requires completing the multiple choice or true/false exam with a grade of 75% or better. If you do not receive a grade of at least 75% on the final quiz, you may retake the quiz up to a total of three (3) times.
