The Confined Space Entry course utilizes the TEEX Mobile Confined Space Safety Trailer to provide students with hands-on training opportunities designed to help each perform confined space entry, assist workers with entry, or supervise employees assigned to make entry. In addition to learning the proper procedures for entering a confined space, participants will be able to better determine if entry into a confined space is permitted. During this training, students will have access to a 38-foot, OSHA compliant, self-contained mobile training unit. Scenario assignments will cover the procedures for testing potential atmospheric hazards, proper application of personal protective equipment, applicable safety equipment, safe performance of work in a confined space, the successful exit of a confined space, and non-entry rescue issues.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Course Completion Requirements
Participants will be required to wear a full body harness and properly utilize self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) during entry exercises.
Participants will be required to enter a confined space and conduct physical tasks under simulated hazardous conditions. In order to successfully complete these exercises, participants should be aware of any medical and/or physical limitations that might prevent them from participating in such activities.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 100% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
