CONFINED SPACE ENTRY - PROCEEDURES AND PLANS
8 hour training program
Safely dealing with a confined space entry is a challenging task. The scope of activities included in any confined space entry is incredibly broad, ranging from pre-entry evaluation of the space and atmospheric testing to lockout / tagout and rescue procedures.
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.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
