Confined spaces can be an extremely dangerous work environment and the utmost of care and caution needs to be taken before anyone considers entering or working near a confined space. Identifying, understanding, and controlling the hazards provides workers with the ability to safely perform their duties within, or when monitoring these environments.
The Confined Space Entry Supervisor & Program Manager is a two-day course that discusses various aspects of an on-site confined space program. Participants will learn principles required to safely identify, assess, monitor, and/or enter the confined spaces they may encounter on their job site. The content will also cover the various roles and responsibilities required for a confined space program. The course includes case studies and a series of interactive workshops designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply the knowledge they gain throughout the session.
Students will receive a workbook for the class and certification upon completion.
