Confined Spaces Hazards: How To Limit Your Risks And Manage Permits
Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered "confined" because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit from. Every year, hundreds of workers suffer needless injuries, even death, due to inadequate understanding of confined spaces safety requirements.

While Entrants and Attendants have critically important responsibilities, the ultimate responsibility rests with the person assigned as the Entry Supervisor.

Join us for this informative audio conference which will focus on not only the technical aspects of confined spaces, but on the very important Entry Supervisor responsibilities, including completing the permit process correctly, ensuring proper training for Attendants, and how to be prepared for rescue operations.

  • The types of confined spaces and the procedures for entering each
