Confined Space Entry

OH&S laws state that “all workers who work within a confined space and all workers with related duties must receive training specific to confined spaces.”

Program Intent

This 8-hour training course provides participants with an overall understanding of what is required to be compliant with Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Code Part 5, Confined Spaces. The course is intended to help an employer develop their own specific confined space entry program and allows workers to understand their responsibilities with regards to confined and restricted space work.
In addition to Part 5, confined spaces, training also refers to the relevant sections of Part 2, Hazard Assessment, Part 4 Chemical Hazards, Part 7 Emergency Preparedness, Part 15, Control of Hazardous Energy and, Part 18 Personal Protective Equipment, as well as internationally established and accepted safety standards including OSHA Standard 29 CFR Part 1910.146.
Throughout the course, our experienced instructors provide common examples of how diligent employers, including those in the oil & gas and construction industry, meet their legislative requirements.
If you need oilsands specific training, please refer to our OSSA Confined Space course.
