Welcome!

Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered to be confined because their configurations hamper the activities of employees who must enter into, work in or exit from them. In many instances, employees who work in confined spaces also face increased risk of exposure to serious physical injury from hazards such as entrapment, engulfment and hazardous atmospheric conditions.

This course offers information to employees on ways to protect themselves from these hazards in confined spaces.

Course Introduction

Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered to be “confined” because their configurations hamper the activities of employees who must enter into, work in or exit from them. In many instances, employees who work in confined spaces also face increased risk of exposure to serious physical injury from hazards such as entrapment, engulfment and hazardous atmospheric conditions. Confinement itself may pose entrapment hazards and work in confined spaces may keep employees closer to hazards such as machinery components than they would be otherwise. For example, confinement, limited access and restricted airflow can result in hazardous conditions that would not normally arise in an open workplace.

The terms “permit-required confined space” and “permit space” refer to spaces that meet OSHA’s definition of a “confined space” and contain health or safety hazards. For this reason, OSHA requires workers to have a permit to enter these spaces.

The first four modules in this course focuses on confined space in general industry. They will discuss the types of confined spaces an employee may enter and the type of training needed to protect them from the hazardous materials that may exist inside a confined space. The final module switches gears and covers the basics of confined space in the construction industry. For more information on confined spaces in general industry, check out Course 713, and for construction, check out Course 816.
