Confined Space

This 16 hour course introduces the student to the hazards involved, precautions to be taken, and proper use of protective and emergency equipment required in confined space work. The permit-required confined spaces OSHA 1910.146 and OSHA 1926.21[b] [6] [i] [ii] is reviewed and discussed in class through lecture and video. The course concludes with a vertical entry in a supplied-air respirator [SAR] and a horizontal entry in a self-contained breathing apparatus [SCBA] by each student. This entry takes place in our confined space simulator, giving the student actual hands-on experience with the protective and rescue equipment.
