Confined Spaces Awareness for Construction

    Confined Spaces Awareness for Construction

    Course Updated: August, 2015

    Course Overview

    In this awareness-level online safety course, you will learn about Confined Spaces in Construction. Find out how to utilize your existing knowledge on confined spaces while learning about new kinds of safety procedures and changing regulations. Confined spaces include manholes, crawl spaces and tanks that are not designed for continuous occupancy and are difficult to exit in the event of an emergency. Construction workers often perform tasks in confined spaces and these spaces can present physical and atmospheric hazards that can be prevented if addressed prior to entering the space to perform work.

    Intended Audience

    This course is principally intended for construction workers with only limited exposure in work locations where confined spaces exist, but which they are not permitted to enter, attend or otherwise work in those confined spaces. It is important for workers to be able to recognize likely confined space environments, the potential hazards encountered and what they need to do to avoid hazards or exposures.

    • Construction Workers
    • Construction Foremen
    • Construction Managers

    This Course is Based on:

    OSHA’s Confined Spaces in Construction Standard as found in 29 CFR 1926 Subpart AA.

    Learning Objectives

    By taking this ClickSafety's Confined Spaces Awareness for Construction online safety course, you will have a more thorough and up-to-date understanding of the equipment, systems and procedures necessary to assist you in reducing the risks of workplace accidents due to confined spaces.
