You’re probably wondering what confined space training is all about. Well, confined spaces are very common in industries, especially at construction sites which can be highly hazardous at times of continuous occupancy. In order to fully grasp the threats and risks associated with such confined spaces, employers across the globe are encouraged to ensure to have their workforce go through rigorous confined space entry training that is deemed fit according to the compliance standards set by the OSHA.
So who should go through confined space training? These specialized training programs are targeted towards professional workers who are tasked with working in or around such confined spaces that can include pipelines, manholes, storage bins, tanks, silos, vessels and underground vaults. Generally, construction workers, supervisors, authorized entrants and even professional rescue personnel are required to go through confined space entry training that are compliant with industry-specific regulations. Similarly, supplementary training in such cases can also be necessary, depending on the level of on-site hazards associated in such situations.
