Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. A confined space is large enough that an employee can enter and perform work, has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. These spaces can present increased risk of injury or accident, and we are here to help you identify areas of risk in your workplace.
Confined Space Training Includes:
|We’ll help you identify areas of increased risk in your workplace.|
|We’ll work to establish the requirements and procedures for entering into these areas, specific to your business and employee needs.|
|Know the risks.|
|Let us help train you and your staff on the risks that confined spaces represent, including consequences of exposure, behavioral, and physical effects that may occur while inside a confined space.|
|We can help you train your employees on the use of monitoring equipment, the proper sequence for air testing, and even rent you the equipment to do it!|
|Selection and the proper use of personal protective equipment, ventilation equipment, communication equipment, and rescue equipment will be demonstrated.|
|Confined Space Team Training|
|We’ll help you develop and implement the duties and responsibilities of the entrant, attendant, and entry supervisor.|
Hands-on training will be completed for individuals that will take part in an entry and/or an emergency “Non-Entry” rescue.
Please Note: “Entry” rescue would require additional training and hands-on practice.
