Confined Space Entry & Monitoring Training

Does your work ever require employees to enter a confined space such as a silo, vat or hopper; sewer, pipe, or access shaft; storage bin, digester, vault, manure pit, manhole, or tank? 

Confined spaces in the workplace can pose potentially catastrophic risk of injury and death. The hazards inside a confined space can result in a sudden fire or explosion, or potentially cause asphyxiation or drowning. 

Course Description

This course provides the tools to identify hazards in a confined space, control the risks, and key considerations in preparing for the potential risks involved in rescuing a trapped victim.

This is a one-day, instructor-led course using a combination of lecture and practical learning. A self-paced, online general awareness course and comprehensive confined space assessment services are  also available.
