Confined space entry is dangerous since many of the hazards associated with confined spaces are difficult to detect. This program is designed to teach employees the proper safety procedures and equipment needed when entering a confined space. Emphasis will be placed on identifying confined spaces and highlighting the appropriate sequence of events needed to safely enter these dangerous areas. Although the program touches upon it, this is not a class in confined space rescue techniques.
