The intent of the course is to provide the learner with information about the hazards and hazard control methods that will permit safe work in enclosed work areas and confined spaces. Learner objectives for this course are to recognize terms commonly associated with confined spaces, distinguish the difference between permit-required confined spaces and non-permit required confined spaces, identify hazards associated with confined spaces, recognize signs and symptoms of overexposure, identify equipment needed for confined space entry, specify safe entry procedures for confined spaces, recognize permits posted at points of entry to a confined space and specify their purpose and use, and identify the duties and responsibilities of personnel involved with confined spaces. Additional hands-on training is required before participation in Permit or Reclassified Permit-Required Confined Space Entries.
