Permit-Required Confined Spaces: Entrant (Spanish)

Course Description:

Over 2 million workers enter permit-required confined spaces annually, but less than 15 percent are trained to recognize common hazards like oxygen deficiency, engulfment, entrapment, and other safety and health threats from energized systems and toxic materials. Fortunately, there are effective and well-established safe practices, testing protocols, and hazard controls that can prevent injuries and illnesses caused by these hazards in confined spaces. This training session provides information on these safe practices for workers designated as authorized entrants for permit-required confined spaces.

Course Duration: 36 minutes

Why “Permit-Required Confined Spaces: Entrant (Spanish)” Matters:

Twenty workers die every year in confined space accidents.

Sixty percent of confined space injuries are sustained by the rescuer.

Confined spaces are dangerous places. They often contain numerous potentially fatal hazards.

Everyone associated with a confined space entry must be properly trained and must work together to make sure the workers who go in come out safely.

Key Points:

  • Make sure the permit is complete before entering. Implementing a properly completed entry permit is essential to control the hazards of a confined space.
  • Know your required duties.
  • Observe air monitoring. Air monitoring is critical.
  • Follow safe work practices as outlined in the entry permit.
  • Be prepared for rescue activities. Entrants should never remove their lifeline, attendants must always be observant, and the entry supervisor must make sure all rescue equipment is positioned near the confined space before approving entry.
