Do you enter permit required or even non-permit required confined spaces?
Confined spaces, no matter how common in construction and general industries, are inherently hazardous and are not meant for continuous occupancy.
Per WISHA regulations, everyone involved in a confined space project must receive the necessary training so all employees are aware of the risks and dangers of confined spaces.
Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, attics, crawlspaces, basements, underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, and other potential confined space or permit-required confined space exposures that may occur during the course of both residential and commercial construction.
This training course will provide entrants, attendants and entry supervisors with an overview of confined spaces, permit-required confined spaces, safe-entry procedures, gas-detection, ventilation, energy isolation, self-rescue and non-entry rescue. The instruction has been designed to address the training requirements of WISHA standard WAC 296-809. This course also serves as an excellent annual refresher.
Every year workers die in confined spaces due to a variety of hazards that can suffocate, engulf, electrocute, or harm entrants in other ways.
Attendees will walk away knowing:
- Roles and responsibilities of entry supervisors
- Responsibilities of entrant, attendants and rescue team
- Multi-employer worksite communication
- Types and characteristics of confined spaces
- Chemical, mechanical and physical hazards
- Atmospheric ~ engulfment ~ safety hazards
- Permit program
- Pre-entry briefing procedures
- Monitoring equipment requirements and use
- Rescue services
