Students will learn the definition of confined spaces, the hazards that create permit-required confined spaces, and how to safely operate in these them. They will learn about what equipment should be used depending on the space and the hazards present. Instructors review various atmospheric hazards and commonly found gases with video supplementation that reviews real-life accidents. Students will develop a thorough understanding of how air monitors work, and the proper way to sample the air in confined spaces. And, finally, students learn about Rescue equipment and techniques specifically applicable to Confined Spaces.
OSHA regulations specify that confined space workers must receive refresher training:
- Whenever there are changes in the assigned permit space program duties
- Whenever there are changes regarding potential exposure to hazards for which the employees have not received training.
- Whenever there is any deficiency noted in an employee’s work performance that is related to the safety and health of entrants or other workers
- In case of an accident or anytime an employee is injured or nearly injured during entry operations
