Effective Confined Space Entry Team Member Training

​​Earn 1 Contact Hour

This webinar outlines what is needed for effective confined space team member training, from knowledge of the hazards to ensuring the space tester knows the instrument’s limitations and poisons.  It also emphasizes when to have the rescue team at the portal or just available and what special knowledge they need in order to rescue an entrant.  This webinar also reflects the guidelines of ANSI Z490.1 2009 addressing Accepted Practices for Safety Health and Environmental Training.​

This webinar will benefit any safety and health professional that may be required to train confined space entrants or entry team members including rescue personnel.  It also informs entry team members what they need to know to ensure they are receiving the proper training to complete a safe permit entry operation.
