Employees who work in confined spaces face increased risk of serious physical injury. Hazards involving a confined space include entrapment, engulfment, and dangerous atmospheric conditions. As a result, employees who conduct work within confined spaces must be properly trained.

This course presents information on the definition of a confined space, hazards of a permit-required confined space, and alternative procedures to control atmospheric hazards. The written program and entry permit system, rescue and emergency services, and importance of training are also discussed.
