Confined spaces can be very dangerous working environments. As many managers know and learn in industry training, confined space environments can cause serious injury or death when working in an industrial facility. Fortunately, with a good understanding of the risks, quality and pertinent training, and necessary controls, many of the risks of confined workspaces can be avoided.

Who needs confined space training?

Confined space training is required for anyone working in an area with limited entry and exit points, an area not created for human occupancy, or somewhere that may be a small, hazardous atmosphere.

Mostly, this includes construction workers, some construction specialists, and anyone working in an industry that regularly involves a presence in a confined space environment.

How many types of confined spaces are there?

There are many different types of confined spaces that may necessitate the appropriate training. These can include sewers, silos, shafts, or pipes, or other areas not intended for human occupancy.
