Additional Training

This course is designed to help workers meet the OSHA Confined Space Awareness Training requirement as outlined in the OSHA regulation.

This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's Confined Space Program, including the specific hazards that the employee may face.

This course is NOT intended for those workers who are required to enter confined space, as confined space entry training should be done in a classroom session and include sufficient hands-on training and practice.

Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job.

Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training that is supplied by their own company. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
