Course Name: OSHA Confined Spaces in Construction
Course Number : 611687
CEUs: 3 (3 Hours of Instruction) Category: General
Confined spaces, such as pits, manholes, crawl spaces and tanks, are not designed for continuous occupancy and are difficult to exit in event of an emergency. Construction workers often perform tasks in confined spaces and face life-threatening hazards including toxic substances, electrocutions, explosions and asphyxiation. These physical and atmospheric hazards can largely be prevented if addressed prior to entering the space to perform work. OSHA’s standard CFR 1926 Subpart AA Confined Spaces in Construction addressed confined spaces in the construction industry, the hazards they present and steps to protect construction employees.
This course is designed for contractors, builders and code officials. Construction trades and their employees are also recommended to attend. Trades include, but are not limited to, framers, HVAC contractors, electricians, plumbers, insulators and air sealers.
