Our Confined Spaces – Supervisor Training course is built to regulatory guidelines. This class discusses topics including basic equipment, confined spaces testing, safe operations, common hazards, rescue techniques, and other information that employees supervising a confined space entry need to know.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required.

  • CSA Z259.100-12 – Full body harnesses

  • CSA Z259.2.2-14 – Self-retracting devices

  • CSA Z460-13 – Control of hazardous energy (lockout, and other methods)

  • CSA W117.2-94 – Safety in Welding, Cutting, Allied Processes

 

Why do I need Confined Space 8 Hours training?

In line with regulations, anyone who works with confined spaces must receive training prior to working on their own. Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

 

  • Did You Know?


  • From 1992 to 2005, there were 431 workers killed in confined space incidents.

  • One-fifth of confined space incidents result in multiple fatalities

Confined Space 8 Hours Training Frequently Asked Questions 

: What is the OSHA definition of a confined space?

A confined space also has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and is not designed for continuous occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, etc. (OSHA)

What 3 things make a confined space?

In order for an area to be considered a confined space it must meet all three of the following criteria:
• Limited openings for entry and exit
• It is not intended for continuous human occupancy
• It is large enough for you to enter and conduct work

What is an example of a confined space?

An area isn’t considered a confined space just because it’s small. Rather, a confined space is determined by the hazards associated with it. Examples of confined spaces include silos, vaults, hoppers, vats, tanks, water supply towers, sewers, and many more.

What are the two types of confined spaces?

Confined spaces are usually broken down into two different groups: permit and non-permit. Permit (or permit required) spaces are the most hazardous and require a qualified person to complete a safety checklist (the permit) before entry can be made.

What are the hazards in a confined space?

There are several hazards associated with working in a confined space. These are the most common:
• Toxic Atmosphere
• Oxygen Deficiency
• Oxygen Enrichment
• Flammable or Explosive Atmospheres
• Flowing Liquid or Free-Flowing Solids
• Excessive Heat
