Description: Employees who work in confined spaces may face increased risk of exposure to serious hazards. Participants in this course will be introduced to the requirements for permit-required confined spaces for both the OSHA standard and the Maryland-specific requirement as outlined in OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910. Topics covered will include: entry permit programs, criteria for permit-required confined spaces, health and safety procedures for workers in confined spaces, hazard identification and equipment requirements, and rescue procedures. Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to determine if an area is a confined space; evaluate hazards associated with confined space entry, including lockout/tagout procedures; develop policies and procedures to address confined space hazards in the workplace; and select suitable confined space entry equipment.
