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.

Proficiency featuring Virtual Reality (VR)
The Confined Space Monitoring & Entry Proficiency is an optional practical component available to anyone who has completed Confined Space Monitoring & Entry. Using VR to mirror practices applied in an actual confined space environment, sessions reinforce the importance and understanding of proactive safety measures.
Participants use critical thinking skills to safely enter a confined space, become familiar with confined space pre-entry plans, and experience two confined space simulations. Contact training services for more details, pricing, and to register for an in-person session in either Regina or Saskatoon.
Those who complete the Confined Space Monitoring & Entry Proficiency will receive a certificate of completion.
