Certification for OSHA 29 CRF 1910.146
This course satisfies training required for OSHA 29 CRF 1910.146
Who Needs this Training?
This certification course is required for employees supervising confined space entry, the entrants (employees working within a confined space), and attendants – those tasked with assisting with entry, but not actively entering themselves.
Dangers of Remaining Uncertified
OSHA reports over 4.8 million confined space entries made every year in the United States, and over 11,000 injuries, all of which could be prevented. The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) program reported injuries in confined spaces result in 92 fatalities per year.
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), approximately 60 percent of confined-space fatalities are rescuers, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration reported that when multiple deaths occur during a rescue, the majority of the victims are “would-be” rescuers.
Deaths in confined spaces often occur because the atmosphere is oxygen-deficient, toxic or combustible.
