Many workplaces contain areas that are considered "confined spaces" because while they are not necessarily designed for people, they are large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs. A confined space also has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and is not designed for continuous occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, etc. This course will:

  • identify the four categories of hazards of confined spaces
  • describe examples of confined spaces found in road construction
  • recognize the responsibilities and duties of a competent person
  • recognize the training and rescue requirements for personnel involved with confined spaces
