Confined Space (ESC)

This Energy Safety Canada™ (ESC) course replaces the former OSSA-approved Confined Space course.

Western Canada Fire & First Aid Inc. instructors are trained and certified by Energy Safety Canada (ESC) to deliver, on ESC’s behalf, this End User program.

Program Intent

This training is for those who plan on working at an oil sands specific work site. Otherwise, Western Canada Fire & First Aid Inc. (WCFF) offers an Occupation Health & Safety (OH&S) compliant Confined Space Entry course.

Confined space work involves some of the most critical hazards in the oil and gas industry, so it is critical to understand and plan for them before starting work. This online Confined Space Entry and Monitor course teaches participants to identify, understand and mitigate the potential hazards of working in restricted and confined spaces. Developed using the Canadian Standards Association’s Z1006-16 Management of Work in Confined Spaces and the Canadian Association of Oil and Gas Producers’ Code of Practice for Confined Space.

Upon successful completion of  this course, participants receive a certificate of completion that is valid for three years.
