Confined Space Authorized Entrant Training

Available in Spanish 

Based on OSHA 1910.146, 1926 Subpart A and Industry Best Practices

OSHA confined space entry standards for general industry 1910.146 and their new confined spaces for construction standard 1926 Subpart AA require companies and organizations to implement a confined space entry program if their employees will enter permit-required confined spaces. A major element of a confined space program is providing confined space training for all employees involved in confined space entry work; that includes the entrant(s), attendant, and the entry supervisor. Certification of Confined Space Entrant/Attendant training must be available for inspection by employees or their authorized representatives.

Employees must be trained when first assigned to duties in and around permit spaces; before there is a change in assigned duties, and whenever there is a change in operations that presents a hazard; and whenever the permit-space entry procedures change.  This Confined Space Training for Authorized Entrants is designed to meet all OSHA requirements for authorized employees. Upon completing this training, employers must ensure that employees have acquired the understanding, knowledge and skills necessary for the safe performance of their duties.
