The course will review the definition of a “confined space”, identify potential hazards in a confined space, the difference between a Permit and Non-Permit Required confined space, the permit procedures for safety protocols, safe working conditions, emergency procedures, and the responsibilities that confined space team members and employers must follow before entry into a confined space is attempted.
