HAZWOPER: Confined Spaces

This online HAZWOPER: Confined Space Entry course helps workers understand how to eliminate or reduce potential exposure to hazardous materials in confined space work environments. This course meets the employee training requirements of OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120).

Course Overview

Due to their nature, confined spaces are dangerous areas in which to work. Limited airflow can cause the build-up and entrapment of hazardous atmospheres. In addition, potential physical hazards may include engulfment, extreme temperatures, slippery surfaces, moving parts, and others.

Because the hazards of hazardous waste cleanup sites are only compounded when confined spaces are involved, it's important for workers to be aware of their roles and responsibilities to ensure safe confined space entry operations. This HAZWOPER training course is designed to provide the necessary information to help prevent injuries, illnesses, and fatalities that may result from working in or around permit-required confined spaces at hazardous waste cleanup sites.
