This course is designed by Energy Safety Canada (to replace the OSSA course) to help students identify a confined space, knowing what protective equipment is needed for entry and the potential hazards. This includes knowledge and tools to identify gas hazards and controls, regulations, permits and lockout/tagout procedures. Students will also learn about employee and employer responsibilities when working in confined settings. Following a successful completion of the written exam, participants will engage in practical exercises (tank entry).
Prerequisites: Participants will engage in practical exercises. They must be physically capable of safely executing this procedure.
