If one of your co-workers were to pass out in a confined space, are you equipped to rescue him? Can you tell if the air in the space is safe? This course will help you understand the risks associated with confined spaces and the procedures your employer has in place to protect you and those around you.
Every year, people are injured or killed as a result of improperly entering or working in a confined space. Potential hazards in confined spaces include explosions, toxins, and oxygen-deficient atmospheres. An average of 20 people a year die from confined space hazards, and more than half of the fatality victims are would-be rescuers.
Because confined spaces may be encountered frequently in construction work, construction workers must be able to recognize confined spaces and understand their hazards. Designed for anyone who works in or around confined spaces, this course and the information it contains might be the difference between life and death.
