Confined Space Monitoring and Entry

Oxygen deficiency and lack of air quality testing are leading causes of confined space worker fatalities. Due to the nature of confined space work, training, education and communication are crucial to ensuring worker safety. If workers are not properly informed and educated, this type of work can lead to serious health and safety hazards, and even death. To mitigate confined space hazards in Saskatchewan, it is an employer’s responsibility to ensure risk assessments are conducted and that hazards are addressed accordingly to prevent accidents.

Saskatchewan safety associations designed this one-day course for those working in and around confined space environments.
Equipment demonstrations, section reviews and guided discussions are used throughout this course to provide a positive learning experience.
