Who Should Take This Course?
This OSHA Confined Space Awareness training online course is designed to help employers and workers meet the Federal and State OSHA Confined Space Training Requirements outlined in OSHA regulations. The course should be taken by employees who work in the vicinity of confined spaces. This course should be used as one training tool within a more comprehensive Confined Space Program designed for employees, which includes training on the hazards, equipment, policies and procedures specific to the job.
The course is NOT intended for workers who must actually enter confined spaces, since hands-on training and practice are crucial elements in gaining the necessary skills and knowledge needed for confined space entry.
Per 29 CFR 1910.146(g)(1):
The employer shall provide training so that all employees whose work is regulated by this section acquire the understanding, knowledge, and skills necessary for the safe performance of the duties assigned under this section.
