Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered to be “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter into, work in, or exit from them. Construction workers (in process vessels or buildings), road crews (in excavations or tunnels), and others can easily find themselves in dangerous, confined space.

Employees who work in confined spaces face increased risk of exposure to serious hazards such as entrapment, engulfment, and hazardous atmospheric conditions. This course defines confined spaces and explains the safety precautions to help workers exposed to these spaces.

This course is part of the Construction Safety Awareness series, which focuses on job site safety and health hazards.

Target audience: The target audience for this training is anyone working in or near confined spaces.
