Course Description

The Confined Space Entry Train the Trainer course allows entrants, attendants, and supervisors to understand and evaluate the hazards and procedures associated with confined spaces safely and confidently. This training will help you to differentiate between a permit-required and a non-permit required confined space.

The course will address the hazards associated with confined spaces and outline the duties and responsibilities of all confined space entry team members, emergency rescue procedures, and plan development. It will also discuss the need for appropriate personal protective equipment, selection characteristics, and pre-entrance testing for each level of protection.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be capable of identifying and adapting to the hazards of confined spaces, and be able to identify & define standards for safeguarding confined space entries. They will also be able to train this course internally within their workplaces.

Documentation will be provided to the student to satisfy due diligence and local regulation compliance. This course meets the criteria for accepted practices in OH&S training (CAN/CSA Z1006-10), the highest standard in the industry.
