Our Confined Space Awareness Training for Construction Industry is designed for individuals who work in and around confined spaces, including authorized entrants, safety attendants, entry supervisors, and emergency response personnel.

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.

A failure 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 can lead to catastrophic incidents often resulting in multiple fatalities.

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

The core objective of the Confined Space Awareness Training for Construction Industry is to train construction workers to recognize confined spaces on their worksites, understand the inherent hazards associated with working in and around confined spaces, and the work practices and emergency procedures that must be implemented to operate safely in a potentially hazardous environment.

Course Objectives

After course completion the learner will be able to:

  • Understand OSHA regulations pertaining to confined spaces in the construction industry;
  • List the three criteria OSHA uses to define a “confined space”;
  • Identify the four conditions, which if present, may result in a confined space being classified as a “permit-required confined space”;
  • Discuss OSHA requirements for a Permit-Required Confined Space Program;
  • Discuss the various atmospheric and physical hazards commonly found in confined spaces and the methods used to control and isolate these hazards;
  • Explain the conditions under which a permit space might be re-classified as a non-permit space;
  • Explain the conditions under which an employer may use alternate procedures for entry into a permit space; and
  • Understand the requirements for non-entry and entry rescues from a confined space.

This course is designed by OSHA Certified Outreach Trainers and is updated and reviewed as soon as new requirements or regulations are issued by OSHA and other regulatory agencies. The course meets and exceeds the compliance requirements of OSHA’s Confined Spaces Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.

Certification

Once the course is completed, you will immediately be able to download, save, or print your Course Completion Certificate in PDF format. Hard copy and plastic wallet card certificates will arrive in U.S. mail within 2-3 weeks.

Training Requirements

There are no prerequisites for this course.

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.

    A confined space is an area which 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 are tanks, ducts, crawl spaces, manholes, attics, turbines, and drilled shafts.

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

    1. Be large enough and so configured that an employee can fully enter it;
    2. Have limited or restricted means of entry and exit; and
    3. Not be designed for continuous occupancy.
  • All our courses are designed to take a specific amount of time. However, some students may get through the course more quickly, while others may take longer to complete their training. This course will take around 3 hours to complete.
  • Individuals who work in and around confined spaces, including authorized entrants, safety attendants, entry supervisors, and emergency response personnel.
  • Employees working in the construction industry and who are expected to regularly perform tasks in confined spaces, such as manholes, crawl spaces, and tanks.
  • Employees who may need to enter confined spaces for supervision work, emergencies, and to inspect safety protocols.
  • Examples of occupations include electrical technicians, maintenance personnel, civil engineers, HVAC technicians, medical and emergency personnel, firefighters, welders, pipeline workers, and building supervisors.
  • To train construction workers to recognize confined spaces on their worksites, understand the inherent hazards associated with working in and around confined spaces, and the work practices and emergency procedures that must be implemented to operate safely in a potentially hazardous environment.
  • This course meets and exceeds the compliance requirements of OSHA’s Confined Spaces Standard for the Construction Industry, 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.
  • When an employee is first assigned duties that fall within the regulations 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, that may require work to be carried out in a confined space.
  • Whenever there is a change in permit space entry operations resulting in a new hazard that an employee is not aware of and trained on.
  • Recommended: Annually as a refresher training to remember and recall the dangers of working in confined spaces and the precautions that must be taken.
  • No there are no prerequisites for this course.
  • Yes, a certificate will be sent once the course is successfully completed.
  • It has a 12-month validity period.
  • Yes, it expires in 12 months.
