Recognizing and Addressing Confined Space Hazards

OnDemand Webinar (88 minutes)

Fatalities and injuries constantly occur among American workers who, during the course of their jobs, are required to enter confined spaces. In some circumstances, these workers are exposed to multiple hazards, any of which may cause bodily injury, illness, or death. Newspaper and magazine articles abound with stories of workers injured and killed from a variety of atmospheric factors and physical agents. Throughout the construction jobsite, contractors and workers encounter both inherent and induced hazards within confined workspaces.

This OnDemand Webinar will assist persons entering a confined space with an overview of OSHA mandated training. We will educate you in the areas of recognition and evaluation of all personnel safety and site control situations. Specific hazards, personal protective equipment, monitoring procedures for atmospheric hazards and the permitting system are just some of the areas covered.
