Employers must ensure that confined space entry is conducted in a safe and legally compliant manner. A significant amount of work is required to ensure that all documentation requirements are satisfied prior to entry. Legally-required documentation includes a comprehensive Hazard Assessment and Safe Entry Plan, Permit, etc.

This course has been specifically designed to assist personnel with developing internal documentation pertaining to confined spaces.
