Course Description:

This course offers fundamental knowledge about confined spaces, including how to recognize them, assess their hazards, and implement control measures. In Ontario, construction projects fall under the jurisdiction of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Ontario Regulation 213/91. However, for confined space work, specific legal requirements are outlined in Ontario Regulation 632/05: Confined Spaces. This regulation establishes guidelines for safeguarding workers engaged in confined space work across various sectors, including construction, industrial establishments, and mining.

Unauthorized Entry:

This course does not provide the appropriate level of training for any worker to watch, enter, or perform work in a confined space. It is meant to create an awareness that in construction, the potential to work around a confined space is there, and you need to know how to protect yourself and others from the hazards of having a confined space on your job site.

Section 17 -of the Confined Spaces Regulation (O. Reg. 632/05) tells us that if there is a possibility of unauthorized entry into a confined space, the employer, or in the case of a project, the constructor, shall ensure that each entrance to the confined space.
