A Confined space is any area that is not intended for human occupancy,

has limited access or has the potential to contain a toxic

or oxygen deficient atmosphere.

Training is necessary for supervisors, stand-by-person, workers

entering confined spaces as well as rescue personnel.
When entering a confined space you must be able to operate an

Atmospheric Testing Device

to determine whether a suitable atmosphere exists to work safely.


The Training program will include the following DOL requirements:
Hazards of Confined spaces
Assessment procedures
Control measures
Emergency procedures
Selection, use, fit and maintenance of safety equipment.


The employer should record the topics covered in the training

and the names of trained employees.
Our confined space training courses meet the requirements

of the following unit standards.
