Overview: Whenever workers enter an area where there is a possibility of exposure to hazardous or toxic substances, or where there is a possibility of injury or harm due to entering a space with only one way in and out, and where only a single employee may work, OSHA has provided written regulations requiring that the space be designated as a hazard with confined space entry requirements.
Why should you attend: This program will help you understand the parameters and definitions of confined space, how a confined space is identified, how to train employees and what precautions are required for working in a confined space.
This webinar will also discuss the requirements and procedures needed for employees or outside contractors to enter confined spaces. In addition, this webinar will provide definitions of the types of hazards that could be encountered in a confined space.
