Confined Space

This course presented by Penn College of Technology, will allow the entrant, attendant, or supervisor to safely and confidently understand and evaluate the hazards and procedures associated with confined spaces. This training will help you to differentiate between a Permit- Required confined space and a Non-Permit-Required confined space. The course will address the hazards associated with confined spaces and it will ouline the duties and responsibilities of all members of a confined space entry team, emergency rescue procedures, and plan development. This course will also discuss the need for appropriate personal protective equipment and the selection characteristics for each level of protection. Because the use of instrumentation for monitoring is also essential to any confined space operation, the instruction will address numerous tupes of direct-reading instruments, including their mode of operation and limitations of each tupe. This course will effectively fulfill the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.146 for confined space entry.
