Confined Spaces For Managers & Safety Professionals: How To Safely Manage Entry & Rescue
|Date / Time:
Every year, hundreds of workers suffer needless injuries, even death, due to inadequate understanding of confined space safety requirements.
Confined spaces are particularly dangerous because of the likelihood of noxious atmospheres and the difficulty of coming to the assistance of workers who are overcome. (In fact, it's not unusual for the rescuer to become a second victim in the confined space.)
However, confined spaces are relatively safe if OSHA's procedures are followed. Entrants and attendants have critically important responsibilities, but the ultimate responsibility rests with the person assigned as the entry supervisor. And who is responsible for making it all happen? Probably you.
Join us for an in-depth webinar that will explain not only the technical aspects of confined spaces, but also how to complete the permit process correctly, ensure proper training for attendants, and learn how to be prepared for rescue operations.
You and your colleagues will learn:
- How to perform a comprehensive assessment to identify and classify all confined spaces at your facility
- OSHA's confined space regulations and requirements
- The critical elements that must be included in a best-in-class confined space program
- How to develop an effective rescue strategy that does not put the rescuers at risk
- The three types of atmospheric hazards – how to identify them, and the best methods for testing
- Confined space best practices, with a focus on supervisory, entrant, and attendant responsibility
- Methods to consider to assure that your confined space entry and rescue training program is complete and effective
- The confined space permitting and documentation requirements and best practices you need to know about

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
