Success 

OSHA Confined Space Awareness Training is designed for individuals who work in and around confined spaces, including authorized entrants, safety attendants, entry supervisors, and emergency response personnel in compliance with OSHA’s Confined Spaces Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.

Construction workers often perform tasks in confined spaces, such as manholes, crawl spaces, and tanks. Personnel working in confined spaces often face life-threatening hazards including toxic substances, electrocution, explosions, and asphyxiation. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 1,030 workers died from occupational injuries involving a confined space between 2011 to 2018. Such statics showcase the importance of understanding the hazards that exist in confined spaces.

This OSHA Confined Space Awareness Training will train workers to recognize a confined space, accurately assess the inherent hazards in these spaces, develop and implement a Confined Space Program for entry into such spaces, and develop well-defined emergency rescue plans.

OSHA’s Confined Spaces Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA, requires that employers adequately train employees to ensure they possess the knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to operate safely in a potentially hazardous environment.

A Final Note

It is important to remember that attending a training course on its own will not make a worker competent. Competence is developed over time by implementing the knowledge acquired through a training course to on-the-job work processes. Therefore, in addition to this online course, it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer.

As an employer, do you want to train your employees as a team? Do your employees want to learn from a qualified instructor?

Answer:

    A confined space is an area that has limited access and may not necessarily be designed for occupation by people but may require workers to enter this space to perform certain specified job tasks. Examples of confined spaces include tanks, ducts, crawl spaces, manholes, attics, turbines, and drilled shafts.

    According to OSHA, to designate an area as a confined space, this space must meet three criteria:

  • Be large enough and so configured that an employee can fully enter it;
  • Have limited or restricted means of entry and exit; and
  • Not be designed for continuous occupancy.

Answer:

Working in confined spaces is considered a dangerous job which is carried out every day by thousands of workers. When employees work in confined spaces, they must understand what a confined space is and be knowledgeable about the various hazards that they may encounter while working in such spaces. Upon completion of this OSHA Confined Space Awareness Training, employees will be able to effectively recognize confined spaces on their worksites and understand the best practices to minimize inherent risks and increase worker safety.

OSHA’s Confined Spaces Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA, requires that employers adequately train employees to ensure they possess the knowledge, skills, and understanding needed to operate safely in a potentially hazardous environment.

  • First assigned duties that fall within the scope of OSHA’s Confined Spaces Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA
  • Before starting work in an area designated as a confined space. 
  • When there are any changes to assigned duties.

Answer:

Federal OSHA recommends that employers provide initial training to each employee working in confined spaces before they enter the area designated as a confined space. To ensure the continued safety of workers at the workplace, Federal OSHA recommends employees receive refresher training as needed.

Taking this OSHA Confined Space Awareness Training annually as a refresher training to recall the dangers of working in confined spaces and the precautions that must be taken to protect health and safety is a good workplace safety practice.
