Confined Space Awareness

Course Overview:

When there is a confined space in the workplace, ALL workers in that workplace require Confined Space Awareness training as well as workplace specific training.

This online course identifies the characteristics of a confined space, describes the risks associated with working in a confined space and the prescribed methods for controlling those risks, and explains the documentation requirements pertaining to confined space work.

Who Should Take the Course?

This course should be provided to all workers in a workplace that contains a confined space. It meets the requirement for Awareness Level training.

Note: Successful completion of Confined Space Awareness Training DOES NOT reduce or negate the need for workplace specific training, as provided by the employer.

Course Objectives:

The course contains three modules:

MODULE 1) INTRODUCTION - Defines the term “confined space,” discusses the legislated responsibilities of the employe, with regard to confined spaces, and identifies the training requirements for confined space workers.

MODULE 2) CONFINED SPACE HAZARDS - Identifies the types of workplace hazards commonly associated with confined spaces and explains the types of control methods that may be used when addressing these hazards.

MODULE 3) THE CONFINED SPACE ENTRY PROGRAM - Identifies the required elements of a confined space entry program

Evaluation Process:

At the end of each module, there is a test. Participants must successfully complete the test before continuing to the next module. Participants that do not achieve 100% can review the contents of that module and can re-take the test as many times as necessary to confirm knowledge transfer and complete the course. Test questions are randomly selected from a test bank, making the composition of each test unique.

Upon successfully completing all modules, there is a printable certificate for your records.

Course Duration:

This online course is self-paced. Participants may leave the course at anytime and can resume where they left off. The duration will depend on the individual participant and their prior knowledge of the subject matter. On average, the course will take between 2 - 3 hours to complete.
