CONFINED SPACE AWARENESS TRAINING COURSE
The Confined Space Awareness Training safety courses from Safety First Training are OHSA based programs that teach overall confined space awareness, identify existing and potential confined space hazards, methods to control and eliminate hazards, worker responsibilities, confined space classification, entry planning and authorization and emergency and rescue procedures. Working in confined spaces can be an everyday function in many workplaces but are very dangerous unless proper procedures are followed. Employers must properly identify these spaces and ensure that proper safety training and entry/exit plans are in place for all workers. Training is offered around Southern Ontario including Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Markham, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Niagara Falls, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge.
Note – we do not provide public sessions for individuals

Many workplaces contain confined space areas and while they may not be designed for people, they are large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs. A confined space may have limited/restricted access for entry or exit and they are not designed for continuous workplace occupancy.
Confined spaces are found in almost every industry and extreme caution and planning must be used before entering them. Examples of confined spaces include silos, sewers, cargo tanks, holds, engine rooms, storage lockers, crawl spaces, tunnels, access-ways, wells, cellars, culverts, vaults, trenches and may also include areas within regular buildings.
A confined space has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere, contains material that has the potential to trap or engulf an entrant, has walls that slope inward or floors that may slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant, contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
Hazards to be aware of before entering a confined space can include:
- The air may not have enough oxygen
- The air can be toxic or flammable
- Entry is defined as placing any part of your body into the confined space
