Confined Space Training

The goal of the Confined Space Training is to ensure workers are trained to deal with confined space, non-entry rescues. Management has an obligation to ensure workers are trained and competent in this area so their workforce can reduce the risk of accidents. Your workforce should have knowledge of and be compliant with the Ministry of Labour’s Confined Space O. Reg 632/05. Workplace Medical is OWWCO director-approved for certifying participants with CEU value 0.7 for the confined space program and CEU value 0.4 for the refresher confined space course.

Confined Space Synopsis – Theory (8 Hours):

  • Understand and evaluate confined spaces at your workplace
  • Review and discuss your confined space entry policy and procedures
  • Review and discuss assessment of hazards associated with your confined spaces
  • Ensure safeguards are in place to protect workers from confined space hazards
  • Requirements of on-site rescue and related training to deal with a confined space emergency
  • On-site entry equipment (lanyards, belts, harnesses, etc.)
  • On-site respiratory equipment and other protective equipment
  • Requirements for testing and monitoring equipment
  • Learn the requirements for on-site entry permits
  • Evaluate or develop your own permit
  • Protect workers from unauthorized entry into the confined space
  • Participants must complete theory training before they can take part in practical training

Confined Space Synopsis – Practical (2 Hours Per Group of 5):

  • How to wear and use appropriate equipment
  • Conduct air test
  • Monitor entry and act as an attendant
  • Enforce safe practices with everyone involved

Important Information:

  • What is Entry-Rescue? It is the last resort option. Having another worker enter a dangerous area puts them at considerable risk. To safely rescue someone, proper equipment and knowledge are needed.
  • Do you require Non-Entry or Entry Rescue training? Our training will teach you how to rescue a person with a tripod and winch that connects to a worker’s fall arrest without having anyone enter the confined space.
