Confined Space Entry / Attendant

Course Outline

Too often, workers are exposed to unnecessary hazards due to poor work practices in confined spaces, either because they are unfamiliar with the dangers, are ill-trained, or have access to improper or obsolete safety equipment.

This course has been designed to increase learners' understanding of confined space safe work practices, including hazards management and compliance with regulation 632/05 of the Province of Ontario, federal regulation SOR 86-304, and industry standards CSA Z1006 regarding work in confined spaces.
