Confined Space Courses

Confined Space Safety for Supervisors

A confined space is any space that is large enough for an employee to enter, has restricted means of entry and egress, and is not designed for continuous human occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, boilers, utility vaults and tunnels, silos, large duct-work, and pits. Permit-required confined spaces are confined spaces that have potentially hazardous atmospheres or other serious hazards. This training includes a detailed discussion of the university's confined space standard and an explanation of the elements that must be included in written confined space programs before permit-required confined space entry operations may be authorized.

This course is presented by EHS and is required for supervisors, forepersons or others who may be responsible for developing and implementing written confined space programs for their departments/divisions.

Confined Space Safety I: Awareness

A confined space is any space that is large enough for an employee to enter, has restricted means of entry and egress, and is not designed for continuous human occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, boilers, utility vaults and tunnels, silos, large ductwork, and pits. Permit-required confined spaces are those with potentially hazardous atmospheres or other serious hazards. This training will help employees identify confined spaces in their workplaces, understand the types of hazards they may contain, and provide them with an awareness of the checklists, procedures and equipment that are necessary to minimize the risk of injury when permit-required confined spaces must be entered.

Part 1 of the 3 part training series presented by EHS for supervisors or others responsible for authorizing or directly supervising entry operations into permit-required confined spaces. Employees who may have to monitor or enter confined spaces or be a member of a permit-required confined space entry team are required to be provided this training by EHS or their supervisor. This training is also recommended for managers or others who are responsible for employees who authorize and/or directly supervise permit-required confined space entry operations or that may be responsible for coordinating these activities.

Confined Space Safety II: Retraction and Air Monitoring

A confined space is any space that is large enough for an employee to enter, has restricted means of entry and egress, and is not designed for continuous human occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, boilers, utility vaults and tunnels, silos, large ductwork, and pits. Permit-required confined spaces are those with potentially hazardous atmospheres or other serious hazards. This training provides instruction in the proper use of air monitors, harnesses, tripods and other non-entry rescue equipment that may be used to safely enter permit-required confined spaces.

Part 2 of the 3 part training series for supervisors, forepersons, or others responsible for authorizing or directly supervising entry operations into permit-required confined spaces. Employees who may be required to be a member of a permit-required confined space entry team or to enter or monitor potentially hazardous confined spaces are required to be provided this training by EHS or their supervisor.

Confined Space Safety III: Ventilation

A confined space is any space that is large enough for an employee to enter, has restricted means of entry and egress, and is not designed for continuous human occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, boilers, utility vaults and tunnels, silos, large ductwork, and pits. Permit-required confined spaces are those with potentially hazardous atmospheres or other serious hazards. This training provides information on the types and proper use of mechanical ventilation equipment that may required to safely enter and work in confined spaces with potentially hazardous atmospheres.

Part 3 of the 3 part training series for supervisors, forepersons, or others responsible for authorizing and/or directly supervising entry operations into permit-required confined spaces. Employees who may be required to be a member of a permit-required confined space entry team where portable mechanical ventilation equipment must be used to maintain a safe atmosphere for entrants are required to be provided this training by EHS or their supervisor.
