Confined Space Training- Blended Learning

Date: 12/14/2021 7:45 AM - 12/14/2021 11:00 AM






The Confined Space Training-Blended Learning is an online format of the original course that includes self-guided modules, followed by a live Zoom meeting with the instructor. The self-guided portion MUST be completed prior to the live Zoom meeting.

This course will cover the new confined space standard for construction activities that OSHA issued effective August 2015 as well as the general industry standard, which have very similar requirements. It does not train your workers for entry rescue into a Permit-Required Confined Space, but it does cover all aspects of the standard and what is required including: General Requirements, Written Program, Written Permit, Attendant Duties, Entrant Duties, Entry Supervisor Duties, Emergency Procedures.
