Working within a confined space can be one of the most dangerous jobs performed in any facility. An incident inside a confined space can cause significant injury and even death. Legislation has very specific regulations governing the work performed in confined spaces. It is imperative that anyone entering a confined space must have the training needed to save their or the lives of others in the confined space.
This course will provide learners with the ability to identify and assess confined spaces, recognize and control hazards and be able to use confined space personal protective equipment (PPE) and equipment properly. Upon successful completion of this course a certificate, and/or wallet card where applicable, will be emailed to the company contact.
This course is designed to meet or exceed provincial legislation and industry best practices.

This course is designed for supervisors, lead hands and workers who work in or around confined spaces.
