OSHA Confined Space Training
Do you have manholes, silos, or other spaces that meet OSHA's Confined Space law?
Serious injury or death in a confined space can be the result of asphyxiation, engulfment, electric shock, falls, and heat stress.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that 85 percent of these accidents can be prevented if proper safety precautions at job sites are initiated. The OSHA Confined Space Standard establishes uniform requirements to ensure that the hazards of confined spaces in U.S. workplaces are evaluated, safety procedures implemented, and that the proper hazard information is transmitted to all affected workers.
This course provides the student with information on the potential dangers of confined space entry.
Confined Space: A space large enough and configured in such a way that employee entry and work is possible, but that limits or restricts entry or exit, and is not designed for continuous occupancy. Spaces such as tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, and pits fall into this category.
Permit-Required Confined Space:
A confined space that contains or has a potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere, contains a material that has the potential for engulfing the entrant, has an internal configuration that could trap or asphyxiate an entrant, or contains any other recognized serious safety or health hazard.
