According to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), a confined space is a workspace that is fully or partially enclosed, is not designed or intended for human occupancy and has limited capability for entry or exit that may complicate first aid or emergency response. Some provincial definitions may vary.
CSA deems a confined space inherently hazardous, unless determined otherwise by a risk assessment. It is important that the potential hazards of a confined space be taken seriously in order to protect worker health and safety. This training has been developed to enable workers to identify hazards associated with a confined space, to be familiar with related legislation, regulations and standards and to be aware of requirements for entry to a confined space.
This Level 1 Awareness course provides a general understanding of the recognition and assessment of confined spaces, along with the controls required for the entry of a confined space.
**It is important to note that further, in-person training may be required for specific duties related to confined space entry.
