In this course, attendees will learn proper permit required confined space entry techniques. Applicable OSHA standards 29CFR1910 Subpart J and the new 29CFR1926 Subpart AA will be covered thoroughly.

OSHA defines a confined space as an area that is:

  1. large enough and so configured that an employee can bodily enter and perform assigned work;
  2. has limited or restricted means for entry or exit; and
  3. is not designed for continuous employee occupancy.

If this describes the type of space you may be entering, this course can teach the proper procedures. This course is designed to enable students to recognize, evaluate, prevent and abate safety and health hazards associated with confined space entry.
