A Guide to Safety in Confined Spaces
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on how to define and classify confined spaces, describes the various types of hazards that may be present in confined spaces, and discusses the entry options of confined spaces, methods for clearing hazards, and the importance of education and training.


Confined spaces pose several safety threats to workers which include toxic gas, excessive heat, lack of oxygen, among other threats. Therefore, it is essential that employers and employees alike are educated in safety procedures regarding confined spaces. The two leading causes of fatal injuries in confined spaces are a lack of recognition of hazards and inadequate or incorrect emergency response.


This 1 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, architects, mangers, contractors, and others interested in learning more about the proper approach to safety while working in confined spaces.
