Confined SpaceThis 4 Hour Confined Space Training online course satisfies the training requirements for the OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.146 Permit-Required Confined Spaces Standard. Entering and working in a confined space is a high-risk job. It is crucial (and required) that all persons involved in confined space entry work such as supervisors, entrants, attendants, and rescue personnel understand the potential hazards of a confined space and adhere to safe work practices and entry procedures. Confined spaces can be found on many worksites, and they can limit the mobility of people who work within them. Confined spaces include (but are not limited to) underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines.
