Confined Space Training
Entry / Monitor Training

Duration: 4 – 7 hrs
Location: At your workplace

Why is confined space training important?

Confined space training is important because it helps workers identify and mitigate potential hazards in confined spaces. It equips them with the knowledge and skills to safely enter, work, and exit these spaces, reducing the risk of accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

Confined Space training is important because it helps to ensure the safety and space awareness of workers who may be required to enter and work in confined spaces, such as tanks, vessels, and underground tunnels. These environments present unique hazards that can be life-threatening if not properly managed. Through Confined Space training, workers learn about the potential risks associated with working in these environments and how to mitigate them effectively. They are trained on topics such as hazard identification, proper use of personal protective equipment, emergency response procedures, atmospheric testing, and rescue operations.

By equipping workers with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate and safely work in confined spaces, Confined Space training plays a crucial role in preventing accidents and protecting the well-being of employees. Moreover, it is important to note that Confined Space training is governed by the Occupational Health and Safety Act, which has significant provisions specifically addressing confined space operations. Workers also learn to take precautions to avoid the hazards associated with permit-required confined spaces. In Ontario, every confined space training should involve hands-on practice using safety gear, such as safety harnesses and personal protection equipment, to ensure workers are prepared for real-life scenarios.

It’s well known that training has been and will continue to be a focus in all industries.

This versatile, well-rounded program gives trainees in-depth instruction on applicable regulations and standards in regard to safe entry/monitoring to confined spaces. Our confined space training course includes theory learning and hands-on exercises perfect for anyone at any skill level.

Course Outline & Content

Confined Space training is a crucial module that every workplace should consider implementing for safe work. This certificate training equips employees, including entrants, attendants, and supervisors, with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely navigate and work in confined spaces, such as tanks, vaults, or underground chambers. The course covers important topics like hazard identification, proper equipment usage, emergency procedures, and rescue techniques to ensure safe work in and around confined spaces. Understanding the importance of safety training, such as space training, and the topics covered in such courses can help ensure worker safety and prevent accidents, injuries, and fatalities. By providing confined space training, employers can ensure the safety of their employees and minimize the risks associated with working in confined spaces. Furthermore, it promotes a culture of safety and compliance within the workplace. Investing in Confined Space training, including spaces training, protects employees and contributes to a more productive and efficient work environment—quizzes after each part and exam help to measure and encourage learning.

Confined Space Training

Phase 1 – Theory Training

Trainees are guided through a comprehensive & interactive review of the trainee workbook covering:

  • Rules / Regulations

  • Types Of Spaces

  • Main Types of Hazards

  • Entry Permit

  • Air Quality Monitors

  • Purging / Venting Equipment

  • P.P.E (respiratory / rescue)

Phase 2 – Practical Training

Trainees are shown air monitoring equipment, space purging equipment and entry / retrieval equipment before receiving the opportunity to practice using the equipment. We provide individual scenarios structured for each participant, further strengthening skills under the helpful eye of the program trainer.

Phase 3 – Evaluation

Upon program completion, each participant is expected to fill out an entry permit (in its entirety) based on a unique scenario given to the class in regard to the type of confined spaces they will be entering on the job. The permits are graded on quality, content, attention to detail, and recognition of the potential space hazards. After the permits have been marked, all trainees will take part in a supplemental knowledge review test where they are asked a series of questions to ensure the retention of all the vital information. The keyword “entrants” is already mentioned in the original paragraph, so no changes are necessary.

NOTE: Anyone with known difficulties in English / written-based tests must be accompanied by an interpreter or consult us about any difficulties that may arise.

COURSE MATERIAL PROVIDED:
  • Workbook

  • Supplementary Handouts

  • Wallet Card Certification (upon successful completion)

IMPORTANT NOTICES:

The program takes part in a classroom for theory learning but participation in the field is vital to successful completion. Participants are required to bring all site required PPE including :

  • Steel toed work boots
  • High visibility vest
  • Hard hat (if required)
  • Any other PPE required by specific sites
  • All entry and monitoring equipment is provided. If participants are more comfortable bringing thier own personal equipment, they are encouraged to do so.
