Confined spaces incidents aren't the most common, but they can be the most deadly. That's because the hazards tend to be misunderstood or underestimated. And many confined spaces fatalities involve not one, but two, victims: the worker and the rescuer.
OSHA's Permit-Required Confined Spaces Regulation was created to help prevent these incidents. And the National Safety Council Confined Spaces Compliance Training Seminar can help you put the regulation into practice and save lives.
Through discussion and activities, our professional facilitator will break down the regulation into terms you can understand. In just four hours, you'll learn practices and procedures that will keep you in compliance and, best of all, protect your employees.
