Average Rating

Part of your job may involve entering and working in confined spaces. If you must work in a confined space, your life may depend on being properly informed about the hazards in the space and being properly prepared to protect yourself from those hazards. In this interactive, online course, we will discuss the general requirements of the OSHA Permit-required Confined spaces standard (29 CFR 1910.146). We will review the hazards associated with confined spaces and learn what you can do to protect yourself from them.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the characteristics of a confined space and list examples
  • Explain how a permit-required confined space differs from one that does not require a permit
  • Describe the main types of hazards found in permit-required confined spaces
  • Describe the general requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Permit-required Confined Spaces standard (29 CFR 1910.146)
  • Describe the general requirements for a written permit space program
  • Describe the general requirements of a typical entry permit
  • Describe some general protective measures used to protect workers in confined spaces
  • Describe general responsibilities of the confined space attendant

By (Contractor / Trades) on Oct, 02, 2019
this was a good course the only problem I had not sure if it's a device or program problem. There was a lot of drag the wording was broken up a lot of the time on certain areas of this program I did report it. With a lot of the wording broken up throughout the training I had to keep repeating the lesson over and over and over again it took me a long time to go through this course.. we are not giving that much time to build to do training and when you have to keep replaying different sections over and over and over again it really is a nuisance and we don't learn as well as we should have. the information I did receive was good information
