What’s in the Confined Space Training Course?
Our Confined Spaces Safety Training course is built to regulation guidelines. This class discusses topics including basic equipment, confined spaces testing, safe operations, common hazards, rescue techniques, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required.
Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, provincial, territorial, and local standards, this training encompasses the following standards:
- Encompasses these U.S. Standards
29 CFR 1910.146 – General Industry, Confined Spaces
29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA – Construction
29 CFR 1915 Subpart B – Shipyards
29 CFR 1910.134 – Respiratory Protection
- Encompasses these Canadian Standards
CSA Z1006-10 (R2015) – Management of work in confined spaces
CSA Z94.4-11 – Selection, use, and care of respirators
CSA Z180.1-13 – Compressed breathing air and systems
CSA Z259.12-11 – Fall Protection
CSA Z259.2.5-12 – Fall arresters and vertical lifelines
CSA Z259.100-12 – Full body harnesses
CSA Z259.2.2-14 – Self-retracting devices
CSA Z460-13 – Control of hazardous energy (lockout, and other methods)
CSA W117.2-94 – Safety in Welding, Cutting, Allied Processes
Why do I need confined space training?
In line with regulations, anyone who works with confined spaces must receive training prior to working on their own. Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.
When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
Did You Know?
From 1992 to 2005, there were 431 workers killed in confined space incidents.
One-fifth of confined space incidents result in multiple fatalities.
One-fourth of all confined spaces fatalities occur during regular repair, maintenance, cleaning, or inspection procedures. (Source: CSCC)
