Protecting Construction Workers in Confined Spaces
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation intends to help small businesses comply with the Confined Spaces standard. It addresses the most common compliance issues that employers will face and provides sufficient detail to serve as a useful compliance guide.

A confined space is a space whose configuration and/or contents may present special dangers not found in normal work areas. Confined spaces may be poorly ventilated and, as a result, contain insufficient oxygen or hazardous levels of toxic gases. Working in a tight space can prevent a worker from keeping a safe distance from mechanical and electrical hazards in the space.

This presentation begins by a defining confined and permit spaces. It helps employers learn about their responsibilities regarding the permit space program and its alternate procedures. It also defines the scope of worker training by defining the responsibilities of entrants, attendants and entry supervisors. The presentation culminates with an exploration of different rescue and emergency services.
