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.
