Confined Space Awareness Online Course





Course Description

Confined spaces are everywhere. They can be found in virtually every industry, but are also as unique as the individuals who enter them. Grain silos, sewers, cargo tanks, holds, engine rooms, storage lockers, crawl spaces, tunnels, access-ways, wells, cellars, culverts, vaults, trenches, even rooms within ordinary buildings are all types of confined spaces.

This course will focus on general safety principles and provide information that will increase your recognition of potential confined spaces, improve your knowledge of safe operations, and keep you and those around you safe. More specifically, we will take a look at the various pieces of equipment necessary for safe entry, exit, and all the work in between.

This CSA and OHS-Compliant Confined Space Awareness (General Industry, Construction, Maritime) course satisfies Canada’s requirements for the classroom portion of operator safety training.
